Fire District 1

Faithfully serving the

City of Pomeroy, Washington

and all of Garfield County.

Continuous Opening for Part-time Firefighter / EMTs and Single Role EMTs

We are looking to hire  part-time firefighter / EMTs  and single role EMTs for part-time staffing to fill one of our shifts and backfill our full-time staff for sick, vacation, and other unfilled shifts.

Welcome To Garfield County Fire District 1

Garfield County Fire District 1 provides service to the City of Pomeroy and Garfield County, Washington.  We provide ambulance and rescue service to all 718 square miles of Garfield County. Additionally, we provide fire protection service (structural and wildland) to over 530 square miles of the county, as well as having mutual aid agreements with our neighboring fire districts and Washington Department of Natural Resources.

Fire, rescue, and ambulance service is provided primarily by our 30 volunteers and supplemented by our three career staff.  Volunteers give their time to responds to calls, train, and sign up for on-call shifts to cover the ambulance.  Career staff take care of the day to day business of the fire district and provide response coverage during the week and on weekend days, when volunteers are more likely to be at work or have family commitments.

Serving You

We go beyond being here for you in an emergency…

We are here for you everyday.

Community Resources

Sometimes we are not your best source for assistance. Find information for other community resources  and  services here.

Get Involved

Our 30+ volunteers are the heart and soul of GCFD1. We couldn’t function without their dedicated service. While the community may see them as heroes, they see themselves as ordinary people…ordinary people doing extraordinary things. They are your friends and neighbors. They may be the person behind the counter, the farmer in the field, or the teenager walking down the street. They may be you!

If you have the desire to give back to your  community and a little bit of adventure in your soul, then join us today.

Didn’t Find What You Are Looking For?

We’re so sorry. Our website is still under construction (another thing that our volunteers do). Please be patient with us as we add to our website. In the meantime, feel free to call us, visit the fire station, or send us an email. We’d love to hear from you.

Give us a call and we’ll help you any way we can.

Come by the fire station, we’d love to talk with you. If we aren’t here, we’re probably responding to an emergency. We’ll be back as soon as we can, but we never know how long we’ll be gone.
