Iowa Falls Fire Station

The Iowa Falls Fire Station will soon become home to a local ambulance service. The Iowa Falls City Council voted on Dec. 17 to create the Iowa Falls Fire/EMS Department.

Two years ago this month, the City of Iowa Falls was working quickly to launch a new ambulance service. The process, which in many cases takes a year or more, was completed in less than three months. Now, that same ambulance service is asking the city to consider an expansion of its headquarters at the Iowa Falls Fire Station to accommodate what they say is a greater-than-anticipated need.

"Everything's worked good, they're functioning right now," City Manager Jody Anderson said, "but the need that we have in this area is so much greater than what we anticipated."

Two sleeping rooms have been built into a meeting room at the Iowa Falls Fire Station. They're used by Iowa Falls EMS crew members when they're working shifts at the fire station.
