Fire Station 1


Located at 701 E. Third Avenue, Fire Station 1 serves as the headquarters for the Moses Lake Fire Department. The station is equipped with six drive-through apparatus bays, living quarters for on-duty staff, the department training facility, and the department administrative offices.

The station was built in 1996 and was opened in February 1997. At the time the station opened the department operated one staffed engine from the station and Samaritan Ambulance Service operated an Advanced Life Support ambulance service from the station.

In 2001 the Moses Lake Fire Department took over operations from Samaritan Ambulance Service, increasing the number of fire department personnel and staffed apparatus at this station.
