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 2013.

Due to the Martin Luther King Holiday, the next regular Board meeting will be held on Thursday, January 22 at 7:00 PM at our headquarters station located at 1243 SW 112th Street, Seattle, WA. The public is always invited and encouraged to attend.

North Highline Fire District thanks our voters for authorizing a fire benefit charge on the August 5 ballot. This method of funding will ensure we are able to continue providng the best possible fire and emergency services to our citizens for years to come.
