Station 34 - Madison Park

Fire Levy Info:   FireLevy@seattle.gov

Updated: 2013-05-10

About the Station
Station 34 houses one engine company (E34) and hose wagon.

As one of the newer stations in the system, Station 34 is in generally fair condition, but requires some minor seismic retrofits to meet current earthquake safety standards.

About the Project
As a seismic and safety upgrade station, Station 34 requires additional seismic bracing to meet current earthquake safety codes.

The plan also constructs a small building addition and minor interior remodels that would create space for the apparatus bay support functions — including decontamination, crew preparation and vehicle maintenance — expected to be added to all stations in the system. The addition will also accommodate a physical training area.

Station 34 will continue to house two apparatus.

Temporary Relocation
During the station upgrade, the station is expected to be relocated to an interim facility that will ensure continued fire and medic response to the neighborhood served by Fire Station 34.
