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, May 18 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.
The Best Christmas Present Ever
December 25, 2014
Lisa and Don were preparing for Christmas with their children and grandchildren just as they have every year. This Christmas had an early start because Lisa had to go into work at 5:00 AM, so the entire family got up at 4:30 to open presents - everyone but Don that is. Don was already up (he didn't sleep well, which was very uncharacteristic of him).
After the children and grandchildren opened their presents and Lisa went to work, the family took a short nap - everyone but Don that is. He still felt restless and a little heartburn coming on.
After noon, it was time to head over to Greatgrandma's house to continue the day's celebration. So Don, daughter, Kaitlin, and son, TJ, all drove off in Kaitlin's car. That's when Don passed out and stopped breathing.
