Fire Department Open House
Saturday, September 27th
Welcome to the Camas-Washougal Fire Department home page. The Camas-Washougal Fire Department provides both fire and emergency medical services to our citizens. CWFD personnel also provide emergency medical services to citizens outside the Camas city limits along with mutual aid fire protection to neighboring departments.
There are currently forty four career firefighters, one chief, two division chiefs, one deputy fire marshal, three battalion chiefs, and two administrative assistants at CWFD. The department is also supported by 30 highly trained volunteer firefighters. All line firefighters are either EMT/IV Technicians or EMT/Paramedics and have high levels of training in fire suppression.
We have three fire stations, Station 41 in downtown Camas, Station 42 in the Prune Hill area, and Station 43 in downtown Washougal. These stations have 24 hour full time staffing and at least one paramedic unit at each station. Since July 13th, 2011 the Camas and Washougal Fire Departments have been consolidated in to one agency through a contract for service. Under this agreement, both departments operate under one chief and combine all operational staffing in an effort to improve efficiency and lower expenditures.
Camas-Washougal Fire Department is the only fire department in Clark County that provides ambulance services. This added responsibility requires our firefighters to be highly skilled in emergency services along with fire suppression techniques.
