Fire Chief Gary Russell

We have a lot to be thankful for living here in the Pacific Northwest. Beautiful scenery, mild climate, and friendly neighbors surround us in our everyday activities. So I encourage all of you to take a moment and enjoy what we all share with each other.

My hopes are that you have a safe and wonderful summer with your family and friends. We have a lot of new and exciting changes as our District continues to flourish.

I would personally like to thank all of our volunteers and career staff for their time, hard work and dedication. We could not do it without you.
