Station 3 in Hallsville was one of three original fire stations to begin operations in Boone County after the district was formed in July of 1970. The original fire station operated one truck out of a mechanics shop in Hallsville. Early operations, facilities and equipment were meager to say the least, however; the strong sense of community and members’ desire to help their neighbors quickly helped develop the station into a strong fire protection unit.
Through the 1970’s a dedicated membership was crucial in the development of training programs, obtaining additional apparatus, equipment and moving to a better facility. As the years passed, station 3 continued to retain several key members of the community as volunteers who would devote several years of service to insure the Hallsville community was protected. It is under this commitment that station 3 maintains it’s service today. The station has a proud tradition of being a community fire station along with remaining a large part of many activities in our community. Recently, thanks to our tax payer’s approval, station 3 received an addition to the current fire station including a training room, safe/workout room and four additional resident’s rooms bringing the total resident rooms to eight. Along with the facility upgrades, we received a new state of the art fire engine with the latest technology to best serve the citizens. We encourage citizens to stop by and say hi and take a look at the updates! We also continue to encourage community members to become part of our volunteer family!
