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 12 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. Our fire district rating is a 4.
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 meeting will be held on Monday, November 21 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.
5 Ways to Prevent Home Fires
Accidental house fires remain a serious safety threat to homeowners, renters, and their families. Each year, roughly 3,400 people are killed in home fires or by burn injuries, making them the third most-common cause of accidental deaths at home. Eight out of 10 fire-related deaths occur at home - the place that is the very embodiment of comfort and security.
"Unfortunately, people often think an accident is something that is inevitable," says Meri-K Appy, president of the Home Safety Council. "But we know that almost every accident is preventable." In an interview with U.S. News, Appy outlined the most common ways that home fires ignite and provided a list of simple steps homeowners can take to prevent them.
