East Manatee Fire & Rescue District Station #7 is near completion. The new 9,259-square-foot, $4 Million Fire Station will serve one of the fastest growing areas in Manatee County. The new station will house an Engine and Ladder, and 12 new firefighters have been hired and trained to man the station. The station is due to open in June, once open construction on Station #8 will start.
