Child Car Seat Program

SWFA is a member of the Washington Traffic Safety Coalition’s Child Passenger Safety Program and we have certified car seat technicians on-staff and as volunteers. We provide child car seat inspections and installation guidance on a scheduled basis. If you have a new car seat or would like your installation checked, we encourage you to fill out the form below to schedule an inspection.  Inspections are FREE of charge.

Station Tours

We conduct station tours at our Sudden Valley and Geneva fire stations.  We can accomodate groups of most sizes and ages. Station tours are adjusted to fit the age of the audience and the length of time needed.  Our other fire stations are not conducive to full station tours, but if you see a crew at a station you are always welcome to stop and get a tour of our fire engines and equipment! We are always excited to engage with our community!

Meeting Rooms
