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 2017 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.

Burn Ban Lifted for Small Recreational Fires Only:

PRESS RELEASE
Sept. 20, 2018

Burn ban modification to allow recreational fires beginning Thursday, Sept. 20

Ridgefield, WA – Rain and cooler temperatures have prompted Clark County Fire & Rescue along with local officials to lift the ban on recreational fires in the Cities of La Center, Ridgefield, and Woodland effective 12:01 a.m. Thursday. Other cities and unincorporated areas of the County are considering lifting the ban as well.
The burn ban took effect on July 26 because of extreme fire danger due to dry conditions and hot temperatures.
Under the modified ban, burning yard debris and material from land clearing will continue to be prohibited until at least Oct. 1, if not longer, depending on fire conditions.
“There is still a risk of fire and all residents are encouraged to be cautious and vigilant,” said Mike Jackson, Fire Marshal with Clark County Fire & Rescue. “Please call us if you have questions or need advice related to having safe fires.”
Beginning Thursday morning for the Cities of La Center, Ridgefield, Woodland, unincorporated county areas and those lands protected by the Washington State Department of Natural Resources, recreational fires will be allowed in approved fire pits within designated state, county, municipal or other campgrounds.
On private land, recreational fires must comply with the following regulations:
· Fires must be built in metal, rock or masonry-lined pits, such as those in established campgrounds or sold in home and garden stores.
· Fires cannot exceed 3 feet in diameter and 2 feet in height.
· Fires must be at least 25 feet from structures or combustible materials and have at least 20 feet of overhead clearance from tree limbs, patio covers and carports.
· Fires must be attended at all times by a responsible person, at least 16 years old, who can extinguish the fire using a shovel and at least 5 gallons of water in one or more containers or a connected hose with the water turned on.
· Fires must be extinguished by pouring water or shoveling moist soil onto flames and coals and stirring until all areas are cool to the touch.

The use of burn barrels is illegal.

Residents in other cities should check with their municipality for regulations on recreational fires and other outside burning.
