More than 200 people may see lower insurance rates, thanks to a new fire station being built. The Alvaton Volunteer Fire Department is adding a new fire station, which will become station number four for the department. The facility is in the early stages of construction and is expected to be open and operational by early 2019. "It'll be a two bay substation. We won't have any kind of office facility or training facility, it'll essentially be a couple bays for a couple trucks," said Alvaton Fire Chief Mason Hamilton. He said the department's main goal is to better serve the community. With this new station, that means response times should improve, equipment and resources can be further distributed, and homeowners in the area should see insurance benefits. "The ISO -- the Insurance Services Offices -- they send us a map each year and the ratings are based on residential and commercial structures within five miles of an existing fire station," explained Hamilton.
