Overland Park Fire Department – Station 6

"In 2014, the cities of Merriam and Overland Park began a unique collaborative agreement. The Overland Park Fire Department began providing Merriam an advanced-life support (ALS) paramedic and a medical quick-response vehicle. In return, Merriam has provided fire coverage for the northern-most parts of Overland Park.

Merriam’s twenty-one fire department employees became part of Overland Park Fire, but the City of Merriam retains ownership of the fire station and all fire equipment for use by the OP firefighters.

All of the trucks, equipment, and even uniforms will be marked in a manner that identifies both Merriam Fire and Overland Park Fire departments.

The unique partnership will save both cities money. Merriam officials estimate it may save half a million dollars over the course of the ten year contract. Overland Park fire officials estimate the arrangement will save their city $120,000 per year, in contract costs – all while maintaining the heightened service provisions of the ALS first response in both locations." - Merriam KS Website
