Committed to Protecting Life and Property
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 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. The District serves the citizens of Boulevard Park, Top Hat, Beverly Park, Shorewood, Mt. View, South Park and White Center. We responded to over 4500 calls for service in 2012.

A special meeting will be held on Monday, April 28, at 7:00 PM. The purpose of the meeting will be to discuss the district budget, revenues and finances to include, but not be limited to, discussion and possible action regarding Fire Benefit Charges under Chapter 52.18 RCW.
