Fire fighters have a new station in Monteverde. The location is to the south side of the local clinic.
The building is the 73rd fire station in the country. The six professional fire fighters and the eight volunteers at the station have responsibility for La Guaria, Lindora, Los Llanos, Santa Elena, San Luis, Cañitas, Cebadilla, San Rafael, Los Tornos, Las Nubes and other locations.
The station was financed by a new tax on electrical bills. With the new 1.75 percent tax, the Cuerpo de Bomberos has financed a half dozen new stations, and there are more on the way.
