On Tuesday, Sept. 12, a ribbon-cutting ceremony took place for the opening of the new Gila River EMS substation in District 7. District 7 Councilman Devin Redbird, and Gila River Health Care (GRHC) Board Members Robert Pablo and Victoria Allison were in attendance, in addition to District 7 Service Center staff and residents, to mark the occasion. 


The new “Station 7” will drastically cut down on wait times for the residents in District 7. Service wait times are now answered within five minutes, a significant improvement from years past.


Before the opening of Station 7 Councilman Redbird worked diligently with GRHC to provide a temporary station within the District 7 Multi-purpose building in 2020. 


Gila River EMS Chief Kurt Rainbolt spoke at the event and thanked District 7 for their patience and hospitality during the construction of the new facility. “I thank the elders of District 7 for allowing us to use your space here in the building and we look forward to providing quality service to everyone here in the district,” said Chief Rainbolt.
