Station 91 is located at 3030 78th Ave SE. It is the second fire station built on this site.  The original structure was constructed in 1957. The only addition to the original facility was a minor addition that was constructed in 1984 to accommodate the new fire apparatus that were purchased that same year. In 1991 a structural and programmatic study was completed by the Lawhead & Associates Architectural Firm. The study concluded that the facility did not meet current programmatic needs, nor current building, fire, and seismic codes.

 

In 1998, the Mercer Island City Council authorized the construction of a replacement headquarters fire station. The new station is completed and operational.  The new facility was occupied in June and dedicated in July, 1999.  It is 16,600 square feet in size and is designed to meet current and future programmatic needs, as well as meet current building codes.

Station 91 received its number designation in the 1980ís, as part of a regional approach to sharing services between departments. This program is known as the King County Fire Resources Plan. Each department in Zone 1, (East King County), was allocated a numbering sequence. Mercer Island received the 90ís series. All apparatus and facilities in East King County are based on this system.

Station 91 houses the following pieces of apparatus:

  • Battalion 91
  • Engine 91
  • Aid 91
  • Rescue 91

These vehicles are cross-staffed by fulltime personnel. Battalion 91; Engine 91 and Aid 91 are the primary vehicles staffed.  Other units are dispatched on an as needed basis, utilizing the on-duty firefighters . 

Station 91 is staffed with 4 full-time personnel, 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.

Station 91 is equipped with an emergency power generator for the event of power loss to the facility.  The generator provides the Fire Department with the ability to maintain essential functions such as radio operations, re-fueling capabilities, and more, in the event of loss of power.  These generators are tested regularly and maintained to the highest standards.  They are used annually as this region regularly suffers power outages.

As part of the Fire Department's and City's Emergency Preparedness Plan,  Station 91 is equipped with disaster preparedness supplies for the on duty staff.  In the event of a natural or man-made disaster, City services will be stretched to capacity.  The City of Mercer Island is dedicated and continually revising plans in which the City will be able to assist the community with mitigating the impacts of the disaster. 

Please visit our Emergency Preparedness pages for additional information to equip you prior to the occurrence of this type of event.  Our Emergency Preparedness pages will provide information in regards to what services the City will be able to provide, and when those services will be available.  You will learn how you can organize your neighborhood to prepare for disasters, and you can find an abundance of information about disaster preparedness.

Station 91 is staffed with a Battalion Chief, a Lieutenant, and two firefighters.
