RIPON – Ripon proper is now served by two fire stations.
A grand opening of the Ripon Consolidated Fire District’s third station designed with architecture to blend with nearby neighbors took place on Friday afternoon at North Ripon Road and East River Road.
The station is situated in north Ripon where much of the city’s growth is expected to take place in the coming years. It is being staffed with a two-man engine. Eventually Ripon Police plan on operating a community police office out of the location.
