Fire Station 31

In October 2019, the Seattle Fire Department, together with the Department of Finance and Administrative Services (FAS) and the Mayor's Office, determined that the existing Fire Station 31 building at 1319 N. Northgate Way no longer met SFD's operational needs.

Following an extensive search process that included community input and considerations for criteria such as ability to meet service response times, size of property, safety, access to arterial roadways, etc., the City identified and approved a new location for the permanent station at 11302 Meridian Ave. N. The site is primarily vacant and highly suitable for SFD's operational and service area needs.

An interim site has also been identified and approved at 10503 Interlake Ave. N. This site was used by Fire Station 31 for interim operations in the past and meets the operational and response time needs for SFD.

This web page provides an update on the status of the project, including design work and construction. Please continue to check back for more updates.
