Construction took two years, but NSFD spokesperson Terri Jones says that "the result is a station that serves many organizational needs as well as facilitates prompt response to emergencies."

The station has public meeting areas and art pieces created by Seattle artist Gloria Bornstein. The Emergency Operations Center can serve both local and regional needs.

Firefighters are delighted with the large engine bays, which give crews space to move around without interfering with each other.

The state of the art training tower includes a live fire burn prop.

An Open House will be scheduled for the public later in the year.
