The Iowa Falls City Council got a fresh look at the town’s 18-year-old fire station on Monday night. It was a tour of the good, the aging, and the not-quite-adequate quarters that are shared by the fire department and the city’s growing ambulance service.
Last month, the council gave its permission to establish a committee that’s exploring how best to meet the needs of the departments, which have been sharing the fire station since Iowa Falls EMS was launched in March 2019. In a letter to city leaders, EMS Director Corey Larson laid out the challenges that exist at the fire station. On Monday, council members saw those challenges for themselves.
