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 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 3,600 fire and medical calls each year, and are governed by a five-member board of elected Fire Commissioners.


Thank you to our community for approving our fire levy lid request during the August election. This revenue will be critical to helping us provide improved response times and emergency services that our community needs. We will continue to report back to you as improvements are made and look forward to your feedback.


Clark County Fire & Rescue has rescinded plans to hire new firefighters in 2018. CCF&R has an active lay-off/re-employment list comprising firefighters that were laid off in 2015. At the time the decision was made to test for new employees, it was unknown whether or not any of the laid-off personnel would return. Due to tight timelines, CCF&R opted to begin the testing process while simultaneously surveying laid-off employees about returning to CCF&R.

At this time, enough personnel from the lay-off list have committed to return to CCF&R to fill the firefighter vacancies. As development continues within the District, CCF&R will evaluate the need to add additional firefighters in 2019. CCF&R sincerely apologizes for any confusion this process may have caused.

An important message from our friends at WSDOT
Clark County Fire & Rescue
A quick glance at your phone or any other distraction when you're behind the wheel is all it takes to potentially change the lives of road workers forever. Our summer-long work zone safety campaign has tried to put a face on those people you see under the hard hats and vests, patching potholes, responding to collisions and working to better our infrastructure. But every week, we continue to get reports of collisions in work zones. We hope this video illustrates how easily a moment of inattention can lead to tragic consequences. Please slow down, move over and be alert. Road workers depend on you to help them go home safely. Many thanks to the Washington Asphalt Pavement Association and AGC for collaborating on this effort.
