The new Tukwila Fire Station 52 is the second of the fire stations included in a 2016 bond measure to enhance the City’s public safety infrastructure.

The architectural design incorporates massive brick walls, vertical metal slots, and high-performance fiberglass windows on all stations included in the bond. Hence, their facades are identical, and all look like a “family.”

Fire Station 52 is a two-story building with a double-height, drive-through two-apparatus bay that houses one ladder truck, an aid car, and one Battalion Chief vehicle.

The facility includes areas for maintenance, fueling, living and sleeping quarters, an SCBA system, a fitness room, and a kitchen.

It also has a training room that serves as an emergency operations center for the city and accommodates two community outreach programs: the Ham Radio Club of Tukwila and the Fire Department Explorers Group.

In addition, the new fire station is situated in a location that facilitates equitable fire response times to serve the community better.
