The City of Tukwila has grown through annexation, from a population of approximately 4,600, to a current residential population of approximately 17,240. The Fire Department has a staff of 63 career-uniformed firefighters and four civilian personnel. We provide fire suppression and medical aid, fire code inspections, sprinkler, fire alarm and building plan review, fire cause investigation, and numerous fire prevention safety education programs. The department is a participant in the Puget Sound Urban Search & Rescue Team, and our special operations Hazardous Materials and Rescue Teams are among the highest trained in the State.

The City of Tukwila is bisected by several major highways and freeways including: Interstates-5, 405, and State Routes 99, 161, 518, and 599. Because of the heavy freeway and highway traffic, Tukwila Firefighters see more than their share of serious injury accidents with numerous major trauma patients. The Tukwila Fire Department responds mutual aid with the following cities: SeaTac, Renton, Auburn, Kent, King County Fire Districts #2, #11, #20, and the Port of Seattle at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

All responding personnel are Emergency Medical Technicians and are defibrillator certified. The City of Tukwila has an insurance rating of 3 from the Washington State Surveying and Rating Bureau, which mean our residents and businesses benefit from reduced property insurance premiums.
