North End Fire Station Re-opens
The flag is up, the station is open. Additional staffing funded by the 2011 public safety levy has made it possible to open the North End Fire Station on a part-time basis. Levy funding, combined with regional service contract changes have allowed the Tumwater Fire Department to hire six new firefighters and one paramedic in 2012. A federal grant will provide for two additional staff in 2013-2014, to further expand the hours of operation for the satellite station. The department also purchased a new fire engine which arrived in December 2012.
The community is invited to celebrate these and other public safety accomplishments at an open house event.
