Delridge/Harbor Island - Station 36
About the Station
Station 36 houses one engine company (E36), the department's Tunnel Rescue Unit, and, because of its proximity to Elliott Bay and surrounding industrial sites, the marine specialty unit designated to serve the south end of Seattle. The marine specialty unit provides specialized equipment and trained personnel to respond to marine fires and emergencies.
As one of the newer stations in the system, Station 36 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 36 requires additional seismic bracing to meet current earthquake safety codes.
Also, a small building addition and minor interior remodels are expected to 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. In addition, the existing administrative area would be converted into a station office and lobby that would offer improved operations and security. These actions will displace some crew areas, so the remodel is anticipated to include a reconfiguration of bunk and living space.
The project is in schematic design.
October 2010: Johnston Architects was selected as the project architects.
