Fire Station 53

Station 53 is located in the Progress area near the Washington Square Mall. In addition to responding to the District’s largest commercial development, this station serves well-established neighborhoods in eastern Washington County and is “first-in” on a significant volume of motor vehicle accidents on Highway 217. The station is also home to one-half of the District’s Hazardous Materials Team.

In 2010 the station was re-built using funds from TVF&R's voter-approved bond.  The Progress location is ideal from an operational standpoint. However, concerns about soil stability, building layout, small apparatus bays, dated mechanical and electrical systems, and a lack of compliance with building codes and current seismic requirements made the old facility unworkable and a liability in case of a major earthquake.

The new station was constructed to survive a major earthquake and is large enough to accommodate today’s modern fire apparatus.
