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, October 19 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.
October is Fire Prevention Month
Fire Prevention Month dates back to the Great Chicago Fire of 1871.
According to popular legend, the fire broke out after a cow - belonging to Mrs. Catherine O'Leary - kicked over a lantern, setting first the barn, then the city on fire. Chicago burned for two days. When it was finally over, more than 250 people were dead and over 100,000 more were homeless.
Fire Prevention Month is our opportunity to educate the public in fire safety and aprevensiton awareness. Please (click here) to view our Fall Newsletter that contains many safety tips to help you avoid fires and other preventable adversities.
