Now Seismically Updated

Station 69 was built in 1981 and had operational and safety deficiencies. Seismic upgrades reinforced this facility, ensuring emergency response following a major earthquake and compliance with state law and local building codes. The scope of the project included a building addition, interior remodel with provisions for female firefighters, and installation of an interior sprinkler system.

Open House Celebration

Cooper Mountain Station 69 officially re-opened on October 4, 2017. The community helped us celebrate during an Open House on Saturday, November 18, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Neighbors toured the seismically upgraded station, met firefighters, and participated in fun, family-friendly activities during the event. TVF&R is grateful for the support of neighbors while Station 69 underwent a voluntary seismic upgrade.

Location/Service Area

Station 69 is located at the top of Cooper Mountain in the southwest portion of Beaverton. Its service area includes single- and multi-family housing, commercial structures, and large areas of forest and agricultural land. With the recent extension of the Urban Growth Boundary, both residential and commercial development is expected to increase in this area.
