On August 31, 2010, a ceremonial grand opening was held for the St. Joseph Community Fire/EMS Station in Springdale. A number of unfinished construction items prevented the station from being operational until now. The Fire/EMS Department has signed off on the construction items, received a temporary Use and Occupancy permit and furniture and equipment are being moved into the station. The new station will become operational On Tuesday, October 26, 2010.
Fire Chief Eugene A. Jones stated, “The Springdale and surrounding communities have waited patiently for this day and I am pleased that this day has arrived. This facility will not only provide fire and emergency medical services but will also be a focal point for the community.”
