CORRECTION: Local 4 News originally reported that hiring firefighters for the Surrey Heights Station in Bettendorf was put on hold. We have been informed that is incorrect. The plan has always been to hire three new firefighters on October 1 and three more on January 1. There was discussion to delay the hires but the Bettendorf City Council voted to keep the hiring dates as is.
The Surrey Heights Station is staffed between 7 P.M. and 7 A.M. every day. From 7 A.M. to 7 P.M. two other Bettendorf Fire Stations (The Downtown and Spruce locations) respond to any calls in the area.
