Wayne was the chairman of the Stevensville Rural Fire District Board. Robbie was a firefighter and Rex currently holds the position of District Fire Chief. Recognizing the need for a better location and building, they graciously subdivided an acre lot from a parcel they own at the corner of North Sunset Bench Road and Chapman Drive and donated it to the Stevensville Rural Fire District.
It is the intention of the Stevensville Rural Fire District to build a station on the site as soon as funds become available. The new station will be very similar to the recently constructed Etna Fire Station on Willoughby near Eastside Highway.
The Stevensville Rural Fire District Board has recently replaced two older stations and developed an administrative/training facility at the westside fire station site. This was funded by district savings and a loan from Farmers State Bank and did not raise taxes for residents in the district.
The board is proud to have one of the lowest mill levy in the valley. The Sunset Station will replace an existing station that currently has no running water or sewer facilities. The district plans to incorporate a community room that can be used by area groups to have meetings and gatherings as we did at the Etna Fire Station.
