PHOTOS: According to a recent news release, the Grand Opening of Meridian Fire Station #7 at 6343 S. Recreation Ave. was held on Tuesday. The new station will be staffed with one Meridian Fire Engine, one Meridian Fire Brush Truck and one Ada County Paramedics unit, improving response coverage for South Meridian. "Getting the best medical response in the safest and fastest manner to our citizens is our number one priority," Ada County Paramedics Chief Shawn Rayne said. "Over the last five years, we have seen our call volume in Meridian and South Ada County increase greatly. This partnership with Meridian and being able to have our crews there 24 hours a day, ready to respond to any emergency, will allow us to better serve our community. That's our goal." Fire Station 7 was built to reduce firefighter's carcinogenic exposure.
