Lieutenant Chuck Hortman. Six weeks into occupying Ennis Fire Station No. 3, the 13-man rotating staff has made a seamless transition. Deputy Fire Chief Bill Evans, from Madisonville – joined the force in January 2005. He acknowledged the staff’s move-in and function in the new digs on Country Club Road has been a smooth process. “We couldn’t have asked for a better changeover,” he said on Thursday. “This will reduce our response time in the northwest quadrant,” he said of the station’s location on the triangle corner of Country Club Road and Jeter Drive. The facilities at the station includes room for a staff of 13. They are divided into three shifts of four, each with a lieutenant supervisor. Thomas Smith is over the A shift.
