From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Saturday, February 6, Seattle’s fire stations will be opening up their doors in celebration of Seattle’s 16th annual Neighbor Appreciation Day. Residents are invited to stop by and tour their local fire station, meet the firefighters and learn about firefighting equipment.
Queen Anne’s Fire Station 20, located at 3205 13th Avenue West, was originally built 60 years ago. Back in October City Council voted to relocate the station to a larger space made up of two empty lots at 15th Ave W and W Armour St. to accommodate the modern day, technological demands of such a high volume station (Fire Station 20 serves Queen Anne, Uptown, Magnolia, Interbay, Ballard, South Lake Union and parts of downtown). Though the station has not yet moved, this may be one of the last chances to tour the old station.
