Tigard Firefighters Host Open House of Remodeled Station 51

Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue will host a community open house and provide tours of the newly remodeled Station 51 in Tigard.

The celebration will take place on Saturday, May 16, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the fire station, which is located in the heart of downtown at 8935 S.W. Burnham St.

The public is invited to check out the expanded facility, learn about TVF&R’s Technical Rescue Team that responds to calls out of the station, meet the fire chief and the crews of Truck 51 and Heavy Rescue 51, and enjoy refreshments.

Young visitors will also have an opportunity to spray a fire hose and go through the District’s Fire Safety House.

Station 51 was remodeled to correct operational and safety deficiencies of the original building constructed in 1993.

Improvements to the building included seismic upgrades to reinforce the facility, ensuring emergency response following a major earthquake and compliance with state laws and local building codes; installation of an interior sprinkler system; and the addition of accommodations for female firefighters.

The project also expanded the facility to provide more space to store the specialized equipment firefighters use for trench rescues, major motor vehicle crashes, and other complex incidents.

The $1.3 million project was one of many funded by the November 2006 voter-approved $77.5 million general obligation bond for capital improvements across the District’s 210-square-mile service area.
