Finding a home for the firehouse

The Gearhart Firehouse is considered obsolete and at-risk in a Cascadia Subduction Zone event.

Gearhart residents can expect to hear more about relocating the Gearhart fire station this fall as city officials gear up for a 2019 bond measure.

In August, the fire house committee convened to discuss how to move forward with selecting a location for the fire house. Three spots will be presented at a town hall in November: the current location, Gearhart Park and the newly added Highpoint Station at the corner of Marion Avenue and 13th Street.
