Clark County Fire & Rescue (CCF&R) is a combination fire department in Clark County, Washington. We cover over 160 square miles, including the cities of Battle Ground, La Center, Ridgefield, and Woodland, serving a population of approximately 53,200. We staff with full-time, part-time, resident, and volunteer firefighters, all who are trained to the NFPA 1001 standard. In addition, we maintain an intern program with two local colleges and direct a county-wide high school cadet program. Though a significant portion of our district is residential, we have business, industrial, marine, and railroad responsibilities as well. We protect several areas of critical infrastructure including the main west coast rail line, several electrical substations, multiple government buildings, the two primary high pressure natural gas transmission lines that run from the Canadian border to the Midwest, and nearly a fourteen-mile stretch of Interstate 5, the main freeway from Mexico to the Canadian border. We respond to approximately 4,500 fire and medical calls each year, and are governed by a five-member board of elected Fire Commissioners.
