This station was originally operated by the Flowing Wells Fire District prior to the Northwest Fire District’s merger with the Flowing Wells Fire District in 1996. Station 31 responds to a relatively high volume of structure fires, many of which are mobile homes, and requests for emergency medical services.

Station 31’s campus also houses the South Battalion Chief Headquarters. The South Battalion Chief is the shift commander that oversees the operations of all of NWFD’s stations south of Ina Road. This includes Stations 30, 31, 32, 33, and 35. The Battalion Chief responds to and typically assumes command of major incidents including structure fires, rescue operations such as vehicle rollovers, and mass casualty incidents.
