Okay, everyone, time to put on your thinking caps. The Spokane Valley Fire Department is looking for a new name for Station 5, located at 15510 E. Marietta. It's just off Sullivan on the southern edge of the Industrial Park.

The department has launched a program to rename all of its fire stations, since not many people know without looking at a map where, say, Station 6 is. The first to be renamed was the fomer Station 10 on Sprague near Flora, which is now called the Greenacres Fire Station. The goal is to name each station something that indicates what neighborhood or area of town it is in.

So what shoud it be? Something obvious like the Sullivan Fire Station? Or maybe something that refers to its location near the Industrial Park? It's all up to you. (The photo of Station 5 is courtesy of the Spokane Valley Fire Department) 

Update: There is some sort of conflict with the planned meeting to get public input, which has been cancelled. Come up with your station name ideas and when the meeting is rescheduled I'll post an update.
