Station 10

(Downtown)

The future home of Bellevue Fire Station 10 will be on the West side of 112th Ave NE and NE 12th Street, north of McCormick Park. The Fire Facilities Master Plan completed in 2014 included a recommendation to build a new fire station. When it is built and operational, Fire Station 10 will improve response times for fire and medical emergencies in the Northwest Bellevue, Downtown, and Bel-Red areas.  The new station is especially important for Downtown high rise structures that include “vertical response time” to reach a fire or medical emergency in the upper floors.  Construction of this new fire station will enable the Fire Department to continue to provide the appropriate level of service for a population that has greatly increased, as well as strengthen the network of services provided to the entire City. Proposed construction will take place in 2019-2020 with an occupancy date of 2021.
