New Fire Station Open House on Saturday Morning

The Fire Station 38 crew has moved into their newly built fire station located at the corner of 40th Avenue NE and NE 55th Street across the street from Metropolitan market (4004 NE 55th Street) in the Hawthorne Hills neighborhood.

Saturday is the much-awaited Open House from 11-1pm. Neighbors will be able to tour the station, meet the firefighters that work there and also on hand will be activities for the kids.

It is the community's first chance to check out the new station, which houses one engine company (E38) and a reserve engine.

The station broke ground in September 2009. The new station has modern office and living quarters with much more  square footage than the old station located at the corner of NE 55th Street and 33rd Avenue NE.

The old station, built in 1930, was granted landmark status in 2004. The City will sell the historic building, located at 5503 33rd Avenue NE, and put the money back into the Levy program.
