North Highline Fire District
North Highline Fire District (originally named King County Fire District #11) was founded in 1942. The District is a combination department with 24 career personnel and approximately 10 volunteer personnel operating out of two stations serving about 19,000 citizens in a three-and-a-half square mile unincorporated area located just south of the Seattle city limits.
North Highline Fire District is governed by a three-member Board of Commissioners who oversee finances, equipment, capital improvements, and general fire department operations.
The Commissioners are always interested in what you have to say, so please feel free to attend the meetings. There is an opportunity at each meeting to ask questions or share your ideas and concerns.
The next regular board meeting will be held on Monday, August 17 at 7:00 PM at our headquarters station located at 1243 SW 112th Street, Seattle, WA 98146. The public is always invited and encouraged to attend.
Training Burn in White Center
March 19, 2015
On March 19, 2015, firefighters from the North Highline Fire District, the South King County Training Consortium and the Kent Fire RFA perfomed a training burn on a private residence here in White Center.
You may be wondering why it was necessary to burn down this house and cause such a disruption in the neighborhood. The answser is that real houses burn differently than cement training towers filled with wood pallets. This particular house was old and beyond repair, and it had lots of rooms enabling the fire crews to practice over 25 different burn scenarios.
Prior to the burn, the Puget Sound Skills Center Fire Cadets used the house to practice Search & Rescue, Forcible entry and scene size-up training.
