Notes and Trivia[]

  • The exterior images of the station are from the real Station 20 of the Seattle Fire Department. The set has been modeled after that building to some extent, as has the station's logo. The real station has no pole, while the Station 19 set does for entertainment value.
  • There is no real Station 19 in Seattle, which is part of the reason that the number 19 was chosen for the station on the show. Stacy McKee, the show creator, also tweeted that she oddly likes the number 19, further attributing to the choice.
  • The station is a legend in the Seattle Fire Department. It has the best stats of the department, has a great crew, and deals with great calls.[1]
  • The station's response time is 5 minutes on a bad day with 3 minutes as the record time. According to Victoria, they set the bar for the whole Seattle Fire Department.[2]
  • Pruitt Arike Miller was born there.
  • The address of the station is 28 E. Union Street, Seattle, Washington 98115.[3]
  • There is a policy at the station of the rookie doing the laundry.[4]
  • The firefighters make up a rotation of who's cooking for the rest.
  • The firehouse has five vehicles at its disposal, with only the three first ones listed primarily seen on the show:
    • E19: Engine 19, a truck functioning as a firefighting apparatus used to transport the firefighters and necessary firefighting equipment (such as hoses) to the scene.
    • L19: Ladder 19, a larger truck equipped with an aerial ladder.
    • A19: Aid car 19, a vehicle equipped primarily for medical purposes, including patient transport. In Seattle, all firefighters are also trained EMTs. The term "ambulance" is used for similar vehicles operated by non-firefighter paramedics whereas the term "aid car" is used for those operated by firefighters.
    • EMS19: A smaller vehicle meant primarily for medical calls without the capacity to transport patients.
    • Chief's vehicle: A regular car meant to be used exclusively by the station's Captain (or visiting higher-ranking members within the city's FD).
