Raleigh Hills Station 70

Project Status: COMPLETED

Firefighters stand in front of Station 70

Now Open!

Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue's new Raleigh Hills Station 70 opened its doors on October 1, 2015. It is staffed by two firefighter paramedics who respond to medical calls in Medic Unit 70. Unlike other stations in the District that operate around the clock, this station is staffed during peak hours on Tuesday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Outside of these hours, emergency calls are divided between nearby West Slope Station 65 and Progress Station 53.

The community helped us celebrate during an Open House on Saturday, November 14, from to 2 to 4 p.m. The celebration included an ice cream social, station and medic unit tours, fire safety house activities for children, and a ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Beaverton Area Chamber of Commerce.

Location/Service Area

Station 70 is located in a newly constructed building in the Raleigh Hills Professional Center in the northwest corner of Southwest Laurelwood and Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway. This station allows the District to provide targeted services to medical emergencies. Station 70's immediate response area includes 5,979 addresses in West Slope, Raleigh Hills, and Beaverton, including single- and multi-family dwellings and commercial and retail structures.

Project Description

The existing building required a structural and elevation remodel to accommodate a station. Plans called for replacing the existing storefront windows with new apparatus bay bi-folding doors, modifying the storefront entrance to match adjacent buildings, and adding station signage, a 911 emergency phone, and exterior lighting.
