Our future vision is to develop consolidated emergency services with our neighboring jurisdictions and develop emergency management zones around each station. Ideally, firefighters will respond to emergencies in zones where they live and/or work. Our goal is to improve firefighter training and operational interoperability while maintaining a minimum of 60 active volunteers in the district.
We're your neighbors; we are working and retired people from all walks of life. We are Volunteers, who like you, care about our community and give a little of ourselves to help our neighbors.
On behalf of Kittitas County Fire & Rescue #7 and our Board of Fire Commissioners, we would like to welcome you to our website! We are members of a growing community in Upper Kittitas County where fire departments readily support one another through automatic or mutual aid agreements.
