Fire Station 28, located at 5968 Rainier Ave. S., houses one engine company, a ladder truck and a medic unit. The old Fire Station 28, built in 1951, required significant work to meet current earthquake safety standards and program requirements. The large site offered the flexibility to build a new, modern station next to the old station.
Fazio Associates was hired by the City of Seattle to re-design the landscape improvements that were implemented during the building renovation that took place in 2009-2010. The landscape and site re-design included a new green roof, revised path layout, plant palette and an overall landscape concept that would reduce the overall maintenance for the Fire Station staff.
