The upgrade of a City of Kirkland fire station on Juanita Drive is temporarily relocating emergency responders to a fire station on 84th Avenue Northeast.
As a result, Finn Hill will receive its emergency response for a year from Fire Station 24 on 84th Avenue Northeast while the City upgrades 43-year-old Fire Station 25 on Juanita Drive.
The upgrade will improve long-term response times and firefighters’ health by separating the station’s more toxic environments—the decontamination area and the engine bay—from the places where the firefighters eat and sleep. Fire stations 21 and 27 will continue to support emergency response for Finn Hill-area emergencies.
The Fire Station 25 upgrade begins in October and will be complete within a year.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
The temporary relocation won’t affect overall response times in Finn Hill. Contracted work crews will renovate Fire Station 25 between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. The work will not affect access for local residents, mail delivery, garbage pick-up and emergency vehicles.
