City of Seattle Fire Station 32 is a newly constructed, 18,000-square-foot facility that contains operational and administrative functions, living spaces, beanery, station offices, and a large apparatus bay that houses an engine, ladder truck, medic unit, and Battalion Chief vehicle. The three-story plus basement facility also includes a hose drying tower and two two-story brass sliding poles that provide firefighters direct access to the bay from the third floor living quarters. The entrance to the facility is marked by a large art installation titled “Fire Station 32 1/2”, designed and created by Sean Orlando. The fabricated steel sculpture is designed to inspire and reflect the surrounding community.
