FROM THE FIRE CHIEF
Dear Neighbors, Clark County Fire District 6 is in its 63rd year of serving our community. From providing fire protection beginning in 1954, we grew to provide Paramedic-level Advanced Life Support emergency medical services starting in 1981. The District now employs over 60 personnel and has 35 volunteers using the latest techniques, technology and tactics to better serve you. ~ Chief Jerry Green
Fire District 6 operates three fire stations which are staffed 24/7. In addition Fire District 6 and Clark County Fire & Rescue jointly operate a station located at the Public Safety Complex at the Clark County Fairgrounds. This station is staffed with volunteers and resident volunteers approximately 12 hours per day.
Due to the extreme fire danger, effective at 12:01 am, July 26, recreational fires will be prohibited throughout unincorporated Clark and Skamania counties.This recreational fire restriction is in addition to the general outdoor burning prohibition that was implemented on July 1. According to Fire Marshal Jon Dunaway this is a preventive measure to reduce the risk of grass or brush fires as a result of escaped camp fires. The ban also includes lands protected by the Washington State Department of Natural Resources.Click Here to view the notice from the Clark CountySEE DETAILS
