This in from the City of Everett regarding work on Fire Station 2 in north Everett, Washington.

There is an emergency phone outside the door to the west of the engine bays.

Fire Station 2, located at 2201 16th St, is currently closed for major maintenance. It was expected to reopen April 15, but due to additional work necessary to complete the project, it will need to remain closed an additional two weeks. Fire Station 2 is now expected to reopen May 3.

The general contractor has been working diligently to complete the work by the original date, but will require two additional weeks to accommodate issues that arose after the project began. The two primary reasons for the extended timetable of the renovation of this 50-year-old building are unforeseen circumstances related to the age of the electrical infrastructure in the building and ADA accessibility requirements for the restroom facility remodel.

“We are aware of the impact this has on our residents,” says Everett Fire Chief Dave DeMarco, “but we are certain the changes that were made to the project will make the building much more livable and safe for our firefighters for the remaining lifespan of the building.”

The crews from Fire Station 2 (Engine 2 and Aid 2) are temporarily relocated to 2801 Oakes Ave and continue serving the same neighborhoods. The emergency phone at the temporarily closed Fire Station 2 will remain in place and the closure signs will be updated with new dates.
