Wildland Truck #288, Engine #285 and Squad #291 now have a new home in Parshall.

The new Parshall Fire Station replaces a fifty year old building with a dirt floor that could not easily house the fire equipment and culminates nearly 10 months of construction.

The Parshall Fire Station serves the Williams Fork inclusion area that includes over 150 square miles and helps to keep home owner insurance costs lowered. The Department will now start planning out some needed projects for the newly acquired inclusion in the district.

The HSSP FPD currently consists of 13 volunteer firefighters that have over 120 years of combined experiences currently.

The newly built Parshall Fire Station was made possible by Bill and Carolyn Dixon who donated the building and the foundation. Harms & Sons Excavating who donated their service for the tear down and dirt work, and others who provided their expertise and labor – Maple Street Builders, B&J Plumbing, Mountain Parks Electric, Vrbas Service, The Dulacs, Rod Sale, Fire Chief Tom Baumgarten and the Hot Sulphur Spring Parshall Fire Protection District (HSSPFPD) Chaos Crew. Lt. Toni Russell for organizing the hose coupling ceremony and Lt Babcock for building the incredible shadow box dedicated to Bill Dixon.

Chief Baumgarten expressed gratitude on behalf of the BOD and the entire crew, saying how incredibly thankful they are all to the Dixons for making this project possible.
