Saturday fire officials will be inaugurating a new station. This one is in Puerto Jiménez on the Osa peninsula.
A spokesperson for the Cuerpo de Bomberos de Costa Rica said that the structure was made possible by a new tax that Costa Ricans pay on electrical use. This will be the second station opened with money from that assessment. Others are planned in Bribrí, Nandayure, Cariari and Monteverde.
