On July 1, 2017, the Springfield Fire Rescue Division returned to full strength.

Funding for Fire Station No. 5 was restored after voters approved an income tax increase in a special election in May.

The station was closed after the ballot initiative failed in November and firefighters were assigned to other stations.
