In 2019, North Mason voters approved a fire bond measure to build a new Headquarters Fire Station for the North Mason Regional Fire Authority. The site of the Authority’s new Fire Station remains in our neighborhood, with the new station being built right next door to the existing Fire Station at 490 NE Old Belfair Highway. When the new Fire Station is complete, the Fire Authority will lease its current Fire Station to Mason County, housing the north precinct of the Mason County Sheriff’s Office and provide space for Mason County’s Department of Emergency Services.
Since the passage of the bond, the Fire Authority has been hard at work with Hill International Inc. (project management), TRICO Construction (general contractor) and Architects West (architect) designing the new Fire Station, and on Wednesday, April 28, 2021, the Fire Authority hosted a formal groundbreaking ceremony. With members of the North Mason community in attendance via video/teleconference, the Fire Authority’s Board of Commissioners kicked off construction of the new Headquarters Fire Station!
