Placitas Fire Station, located in Sandoval County near the Village of Placitas, serves both as a fire/emergency service facility but also as a neighborhood center. The Fire Station includes Three Service Bays, a Kitchen, Multipurpose Activity Room, Restrooms / Lockers, and a Caretaker Suite. The Fire Station is located with access to Highway 44, however, visibility to exit onto the Highway is partially blocked by a curve in the road. To make access safe, a traffic light has been installed to provide safe exiting capability for the emergency vehicles. Since the Fire Station is somewhat remote, a water well and a storage tank was installed for portable water use and to refill the water tanker trucks. The facility functions well as a Fire/Emergency Station and as a gathering place for neighborhood activities.
