Nevada Ranches, LLC, formerly known as Tuffy Ranch Properties, LLC, owned by Albert and Thomas Seeno, donated and parcel of land in Eagle Valley and transferred the title to the Lincoln County Fire District.

Emilia Cargill, representing the Seeno brothers, presented a deed to Lincoln County Fire District chief Rick Stever and board members of the Lincoln County Fire District at the County Commissioners meeting Jan. 21. The parcel of land is for use as the Eagle Fire Valley Station.

When asked about why he made this donation, Mr. Seeno said, “I like Lincoln County and enjoy spending time here, so when Chief Stever asked if we would donate a piece of property in Eagle Valley to the Fire District, I immediately said ‘Yes.’  We (all of our companies that do business in Lincoln County – Coyote Springs Investment LLC, Nevada Ranches LLC and Geyser Ranch LLC) enjoy being a part of the community of Lincoln County.”

Stever said he was very pleased and it showed, “a very positive indication and willingness to work with the public and the community for this private landowner (Seeno). It’s a very big step to provide public safety in an area that encompasses quite a large range and variety of citizens. It gives us a better response center to house equipment and provide public safety.”

Work on construction to expand the Eagle Valley Fire Station is nearly complete. Stever said a new building has been added to the existing building and a roof covers both buildings.

Stever said earlier, once the fire station is opened, a local volunteer fire department will be needed, and each person will have to go through the normal volunteer firefighter training and regulations, as well as learn how to operate the new engine. He said a volunteer fire department will also have a beneficial effect on insurance rates for Eagle Valley residents.
