Cloverdale Southern District EMS Station
52 E. Mill Street
Cloverdale, IN 46120
The original Cloverdale Operation Life station was constructed back in the 1970s, and was at one time used as a bait shop. By 2007, Operation Life administration determined that the mounting costs and declining mechanical reliability of a building that was four decades old would be best solved by erecting a new structure. Construction costs were put aside over a four year period, and planning for the new station began in January 2011. Contractors broke ground by summer, and the Cloverdale Station was completed in October 2011. No taxpayer funding was utilized in the planning or construction of this new facility. An open house was held to offer the community an opportunity to view the ambulance station on October 20, 2011.
It features ‘green’ construction features such as motion-sensor lights, LED lighting, a tankless water heater and high efficiency heating and cooling. The facility has full living quarters for the 24-hour duty crew and continuous operations are ensured by a natural gas powered generator.
Cloverdale Station is home to Medic 5 and also houses a reserve ambulance. Medic 5’s primary response areas include all areas in a boundary which is south of US-40, east of the Clay County Line, north of the Owen County line and west of the Hendricks and Morgan County Lines. Medic 5 also has the daunting task of covering the largest stretch of Interstate 70 in Indiana – nearly 22 miles.
