A crew of firefighters from Florida’s Stuart city can spend as long as two years working and living inside an RV, a report said. 

They’re not taking off for a long road trip, nor would they be camping. However, they’ll be at Haney Creek Park.

Two firefighters will be available 24/7 in the RV worth $61,000, which City Commission approved purchasing on Monday. The vehicle will serve as an emergency fire station that will serve parts of the city north of Roosevelt Bridge.

The RV will function as an accommodation for firefighters on 24-hour shifts, said Fire Chief Vince Felicione.

The station’s creation was spurred by a newly-signed interlocal contract between Martin County and the city. Stuart Fire Rescue will respond to emergency calls located north of Northwest Wright Boulevard, an area previously covered by Martin County Fire Rescue.

The RV will be an interim base for up to two years while Stuart develops their third facility for firefighters located on the road that leads to the Reserve Windemere neighborhood off U.S.1, the city’s manager David Dyess said.

The purchase of the RV was the most efficient method of putting personnel in the region until the next location is complete, the officials stated.
