History

The Fire District was formed in 1965 as a volunteer fire department. Prior to 1965, The Fry Playground Association provided fire protection to the citizens of Fry. Private local garages were used to house the two donated Air Force fire trucks. It has evolved, over the years, into a combination fire department, utilizing paid, reserve and volunteer members. Originally a single station, located in the Fry Townsites (Station 1), provided District fire protection. Later, a temporary station (Station 2) was opened on Highway 90 East in the Cloud 9 Mobile Home Park. This station was closed and the permanent station on Yaqui Street (New Station 2) was opened. In 1988, a third station in the Moson Road area (Station 3) was constructed and limited staffing and operational hours were established. The station is fully operational at this time, providing Fire and EMS services to the eastern portion of the Fire District.
