Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue Station 68:  Construction Progress Update
by TVF&R

The new TVF&R Station 68, located at 13545 NW Evergreen St., is starting to take shape as construction progress is made on framing the walls, setting trusses, and roof work.  Mechanical, electrical, and plumbing rough-in work has started inside the new building.  Some additional exterior work continues on site; however, the contractor will wait until the spring and warmer weather before pouring the driveways and completing the landscaping. 

Framing of the south wall of the apparatus bay continues.

The current Station 68 was originally constructed in 1970 as a residential home. In 1984, TVF&R purchased the property and adapted it for use as a two-person fire station with one mini pumper. The aging structure does not meet current seismic standards, and has dated mechanical and electrical systems, reduced capacity to house multiple modern fire engines, and no provisions for a full emergency response crew (4-person company) or female firefighters.

The new station is being built to withstand a major seismic event, house today’s modern fire apparatus, and will offer a community room.  TVF&R’s community rooms are offered free-of-charge to qualifying non-profit organizations and for a fee to business, social, and private guests.

The project is on-schedule and should be completed in summer 2014.  The community is invited to follow the station’s progress and sign up for electronic updates via the TVF&R “Notify Me” feature at
