Money Issues Strike River Falls Fire Department

The River Falls Fire headquarters have been condemned by Greenville County due to structural problems and asbestos found in the building.

River Falls provides fire protection for 32-square miles from 2,500 to 4,000 people, depending on the time of day.

The fire chief said the necessary repairs for the headquarters cost more than the department’s $89,000 annual budget.

For now, volunteers are using a Quonset hut borrowed from Parker Fire District firefighters.
