History and Training Center
This station was constructed, and the fire company was established in the fall of 2001 to cover the thriving growth of the northern end of the district. This company is the newest and most northern of the district, which serves a suburban & rural population along with three major highway systems.
This fire station also acts as the headquarters for the district and includes the Southern Platte Training Center. From the start, Pumper 24 was the primary fire apparatus to handle emergency responses for this district. In 2008, the district partnered with Kansas City Fire Department Communications Center for dispatching and changed the assigned number to Pumper #64.
Our training tower has two burn rooms for class A materials, a standpipe system, sprinkler system, an elevator shaft, two vertical ventilation props, artificial smoke system, two different roof pitches for ventilation drills, an attic simulation area and rope rescue props with repelling anchors throughout. The classroom is used for internal training purposes and classes brought in from outside the organization. The SPTC is available to outside organizations to use for their training purposes.
