I've lived in Eugene since 1988, having moved over from Florence where I had lived since the late 70s. There's a senior retirement apartment in Eugene named Kingsley Court, and it's right next to a fire station. I've asked at the manager's office of the apartments if that makes it uncomfortable for the apartment residents when the sirens go off, and of course, I was told it wasn't.

What I'm wondering is if anyone here has lived there, or knows someone who has, who can say first-hand whether it's too noisy and startling. I have what is known as "exaggerated startle response", and am concerned about the sudden loud sounds. Otherwise, it looks like such a good place, and there aren't very many of those here.

I live near there, and we've never had a problem. It is a really nice area.

Yes, the area is very pretty. I drove by a couple years ago, and have called about an apartment, but didn't know what I might be getting into with sudden noises, sirens, etc. Thanks for your answer.

The only real noises we notice are traffic noise (this area is close to Beltline hwy) and the occasional dog barking or crazy college kid racing his car down the street. And you really cannot escape those kinds of noises unless you invest in rural property somewhere.

Don't you even hear sirens or anything at the station? It seems they would be louder than hotrods or the noises on Beltline. I live near a different section of Beltline at the present time, and after a couple of weeks, all that noise went away.

We really don't hear the sirens that often. In fact, I don't remember the last time I heard one. My husband suggested that perhaps they wait to turn their sirens on until they get on the hwy?
