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, July 20 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.
King County Fire Chiefs urge citizens to attend public display due to fire danger
Fire Chiefs are urging citizens to attend one of the many professional public fireworks displays during the Fourth of July weekend. Prolonged dry weather and below-average spring rainfall have prompted premature grass and vegetation growth, creating more fuel nearly six weeks earlier than normal.
Last year King County fire agencies responded to nearly 200 fire calls with 82 of them related to fireworks. Retail fireworks go on sale June 28 through July 4 and discharging, in those communities that allow fireworks, are limited to July 4 from 9 AM to 11 PM.
Those who choose to light fireworks should follow the three B's - Be Prepared, Be Safe, and Be Responsible!
