Seattle's Public Safety Is Our Top Priority!

Hire More

Seattle Needs More Fire Fighters Over the past 40-years, Seattle's population has grown 50%, but the number of Fire Fighters has stayed stagnant. As emergency calls for service continue to rise, we need more Fire Fighters and Paramedics to care for our City.

Upgrade Our Tools

To Better Serve SeattleWith an aging fleet of trucks, engines, ambulances, and other emergency response vehicles, the Seattle Fire Department needs to replace outdated rigs that are no longer reliable in critical situations. Seattle Fire Fighters are constantly on the move and we need to have a modern fleet that can keep up with the demand.

It's For You

Seattle Fire For Seattle Families In 2018, Seattle Fire Fighters responded to nearly 150,000 emergency calls for service - the most ever in the history of our department. Our Fire Fighters are on the front lines of all emergency calls, including the growing mental health and homeless issues impacting our city.
