Friday, April 20, 2018 was a special day for District 7 as our (9) recruits graduated from the Washington State Fire Training Academy
The District 7 Volunteer Firefighters Association held a welcoming dinner for the nine new paid firefighters prior to training Tuesday evening on January 23rd. Great conversation, food, and an opportunity for the new folks to get know the people that form the backbone of our district! Thank You.
Saturday June 3, 2017 was a busy day for volunteers from Kittitas County Fire Districts 1,2,3,4,6,7,8, Snoqualmie Pass, and Cle Elum participated in live fire training in Thorp in preparation for the upcoming wildland fire season. The event was graciously hosted by Fire District 1 (Thorp) with training coordinated by Brandon Schmitt with the assistance of District 7's Eric Kiehn. Department of Natural Resources provided a helicopter crew allowing members needing certification on coordinating air drops to obtain the experience. This training provides a realistic warmup for what is hoped to be a slow season.
