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.

CCFR Responds to Brush Fire Near NE 179th Street in Clark County.
Clark County Fire & Rescue responded to a report of trees and brush on fire in the 2500 block of NE 179th Street at 1333 hours today. Initial arriving crews found a fire of approximately one acre in size burning in trees, brush and grass. No structures were threatened by this fire.

Crews called for more resources due to the difficult terrain and remote location of the fire. CCFR was assisted by units from Clark County Fire District 6, Clark County Fire District 3, Vancouver Fire Department, Cowlitz County Fire District 1, and the Washington Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

DNR provided a helicopter based at Camp Bonneville to assist by dropping water from above in an effort to contain and extinguish the fire. In addition, DNR provided two hand crews and two engines to mop up the fire. Since the fire was in natural vegetation and did not threaten any structures, DNR will finish the mop up and will investigate the fire to determine the cause.

Total Resources:

3 fire engines (2 CCFR and 1 VFD)

4 Brush Units (2 CCFR, 1 CCFD6, and 1 Cowlitz FD1)

4 water tenders (large tankers to deliver water) (2 CCFR, 1 CCFD3 and 1 VFD)

5 Chiefs (3 CCFR, 1 CCFD6, and 1 VFD)

1 helicopter, 2 engines, and 2 hand crews (12 firefighters in a hand crew) from DNR
