Station 7 “Dripping Springs”

Station 7 was built in 2004 as the last part of the 2000 tax bond approval. It is located at 525 W. Dripping Springs Rd, approximately 3/4 mile west of Highway 63. Station 7 was built due to the need for an addition station between Stations 3, 4, and 5. Before Station 7, response times were long due to existing station locations. Initially, Station 7 was an apparatus bay with no residence quarters and was a single company station. The initial Engine 701 was a 1983 Smeal Pumper, which was originally Engine 501. In 2005, the 1983 Smeal was replaced with a 2000 Pierce Freightliner 2 person Pumper, which continues to serve today as Engine 701. As part of the 2014 bond issue, a tanker was added to the Station 7 fleet. Tanker 705 is a 2016 Freightliner 1500 gallon tanker.

In 2006 or 2007, a modular home was placed behind the original bay, providing a 3 bedroom residence for firefighters. Modular home was used until October 2015, at which time it was removed in anticipation of a new addition to the apparatus bay. Construction began on a new 4 resident fire station in February 2016, with anticipated completion of September 2016. The new addition with have 4 separate bedrooms with loft bed for resident firefighters. Also added was a Training/Multipurpose Room, Day Room, Large Kitchen with Breakfast Bar, and Dining area. One of the more innovative additions was the addition of a Workout/Storm Shelter. This room is a cinder block, concrete and steel reinforced structure with heavy door. This room will provided an area for the firefighter, both resident and non-resident, to have a place to help remain physically fit. This room also provided a shelter for the firefighters in the event of severe weather. All of this was provided by the taxpayers of Boone County through a 2014 Tax Bond.
