Vancouver, Washington – Vancouver Fire Department and Clark County Fire District 5 (CCFD5) hosted a limited-attendance groundbreaking ceremony July 13 to celebrate the commencement of construction on Fire Station 11, located at 9606 NE 130th Avenue in the Orchards/Sifton area of Clark County.

“The Fire Station 11 groundbreaking marks an important milestone in bringing the collaborative vision of the city and its partners at Clark County Fire District 5 to fruition in fall 2022,” said City of Vancouver Mayor Anne McEnerny-Ogle. “This new station will improve our public safety infrastructure and emergency response for more than a quarter of a million residents currently served by the Vancouver Fire Department.”

The groundbreaking event featured remarks by City of Vancouver Mayor Anne McEnerny-Ogle, Clark County Fire District 5 Commissioner Mike Lyons, and Vancouver Fire Chief Brennan Blue. The program was followed by a ceremonial groundbreaking with project leaders and stewards (photo attached).

The public is invited to watch a recording of the groundbreaking ceremony at www.cityofvancouver.us/Station11.  Both live American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and closed captioning is provided.

Fire Station 11 is anticipated to open in fall 2022 and will be operated by the Vancouver Fire Department. Funding for the project was provided by Clark County Fire District 5 an independent junior taxing district, that provides funding for emergency and fire services in CCFD5 outside Vancouver city limits. 

“Clark County Fire District 5 is grateful for the service that Vancouver Fire Department provides to our fire district in unincorporated Clark County,” said CCFD5 Commissioner Lyons. “Our collaboration with the city to build and staff Station 11 will significantly enhance fire and EMS services to this growing area of our community. We look forward to continuing this partnership to improve public safety for many years to come.”

The 15,000 square foot station was designed by local firm Mackenzie Architecture in collaboration with the Vancouver Fire Department. The design is modeled after the award-winning Vancouver Fire Station 2, located at 2106 Norris Road in central Vancouver. The station is being constructed by Kirby Nagelhout Construction with construction inspection support provided by OTAK. 

A public grand opening event will take place when Fire Station 11 opens in 2022. More details will be announced when plans are finalized. In the meantime, follow along with the station’s construction progress at www.cityofvancouver.us/Station11.
