The primary station and District Headquarters are at Station #3 on Tyler Foote Road. We also have stations in North San Juan and French Corral.
Volunteer firefighters serve the District, using a duty officer system so that immediate response is provided, either from Station 3 at Tyler Foote Road or
from the duty officer’s home in a District engine. We serve approximately 2600 residents using some seven engines or vehicles, several equipped with compressed air foam equipment; one vehicle is a 4000 gallon water tender. The District has earned an ISO (Insurance Services Office) rating of 8B.
