TVF&R Hosts an Open House at Station 72 in Skyline
The community is invited to attend an open house celebration at Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue’s Station 72 at 11646 NW Skyline Blvd.
The free, family-friendly event will take place on Saturday, Oct. 7, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Neighbors can swing on by anytime during open house hours.
Visitors will have the opportunity to tour the seismically upgraded station, meet volunteer firefighters who operate out of the station, view antique fire apparatus, go through our Fire Safety Education House, learn fire and life safety tips and take a quick lesson in hands-only CPR. Young guests will also have the chance to go through a junior firefighter challenge and spray a fire hose.
TVF&R is grateful for the support of neighbors while Station 72 underwent a voluntary seismic upgrade to ensure crews can respond following a major earthquake. The building was remodeled into a multi-use station that will serve the area for many years.
The station now features new fitness, kitchen, dining, dayroom, and office facilities as well as new men’s and women’s showers, an ADA restroom, and bunk rooms. The grounds have also been improved with new ADA parking, fencing, and landscaping.
Volunteer firefighters will continue to operate out of Station 72, and TVF&R crews will continue to respond to 911 emergency incidents in the area.
For more information about the open house, contact Public Affairs Officer Kim Haughn at 503-259-1192.
