Yes stations close when no one is there. You won and a volunteer fire department will have to be formed or the District will have to pay some one Else's department to provide service. It is happening all over the country.
We had a volunteer dept.
Will the firefighters union allow volunteers under the same roof?
That station was staffed with volunteers. Then they hired employees. Then they unionized. Then they became unaffordable.
