Station 41 - Magnolia

Updated: May 10, 2013

About the Station
Fire Station 41, located at 2416 34th Ave. W., houses one engine company.

To meet current earthquake safety standards and accommodate today's firefighting operations, Fire Station 41 was seismically upgraded, renovated and expanded.

In 2005, the station received landmark designation from the Seattle Landmarks Board. Read the landmark nomination report.

Station Improvements
The architectural firm Hoshide Williams designed the fire station.

The project scope included remodeling the station to accommodate apparatus support (decontamination and bunker gear storage) and bringing the station up to current safety standards. An addition for sleeping quarters was added to the back of the station.

Temporary Relocation
During the station rebuild, the crews moved to an interim location to ensure continued fire and emergency response to the neighborhoods served by Fire Station 41.

Current Status
The project is completed.


  • January 2010: Construction was completed.
  • June 2009: Kirtley-Cole Associates was awarded the construction contract. Construction began. The temporary facility was completed.
  • May 2008: A community open house was held to review the location for the temporary fire station.

About 20 neighbors reviewed and discussed the temporary station plans with representatives from the Fire Department, Fleets and Facilities Department and the Seattle School District.

  • June 2007: About 150 neighbors attended the pre-design scope open house to learn about the new station, view sketches, meet the firefighters and tour the engine.
