Clark County Fire & Rescue (CCF&R) is a combination fire department in Clark County, Washington. We cover over 125 square miles, including the cities of La Center, Ridgefield, and Woodland, serving a population of approximately 40,000. We staff with full-time, resident, and volunteer firefighters, all who are trained to the NFPA 1001 standard. In addition, we maintain an intern program with a local college and participate 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 4,200 fire and medical calls each year, and are governed by a six-member board of elected Fire Commissioners.

News Release from Clark Co. WA Communications
Posted on FlashAlert: September 19th, 2019 9:11 AM
Vancouver, Wash. – An abundance of rain and cooler temperatures have prompted Clark County Fire
Marshal Jon Dunaway to lift the ban on outdoor debris burning in unincorporated Clark County,
effective 8 a.m. Friday, Sept. 20.
“It is very unusual for us to lift the annual burn ban before the end of September. But given the moisture
levels of the wildfire fuels and the forecast for ongoing precipitation, it just makes sense,” said
Dunaway. However, Dunaway also urges residents to be vigilant when burning and always attend a
permitted fire until it is completely extinguished and cold to the touch.
At the same time the Washington Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will lower the Fire Danger
Rating to low, opening DNR-regulated lands to rule burning.
