Organization

The Fire District staffs seven (7) career personnel on a 48 hours on, 96 hours off rotation to provide immediate 24/7 response to all calls within the Fire District. This staff responds out of Fire Station 61 on Jackson Highway in Chehalis. Also housed in Fire Station 61 is one full time fire chief, one part time fire chief, and one full time administrative assistant. 

The Fire District offers a volunteer shift program, where volunteers for the Fire District may sign up to work 8, 12, or 24 hour shifts out of Fire Station 61 or Fire Station 62. Those slots are filled as volunteers are available. 

Fire District 6 has four unstaffed fire stations placed throughout the Fire District that volunteer staff can respond to from their houses when a call for service is generated. These stations can also be placed in service by volunteer staff to provide additional responses when multiple calls for service are active simultaneously.
