About the Station
Fire Station 37, located at 7700 35th Ave. SW, houses one engine company and a reserve engine.

Since the old station and site were too small to accommodate modern fire operations, a new station was built on the southeast corner of 35th Avenue Southwest and Southwest Holden Street.

The Seattle Landmarks Board designated the current station, built in 1925, as a landmark in 2004. View the landmark nomination report: Part 1 and Part 2. The City will sell the historic building and put the money back into the Fire Levy program.
