Part of the community since 1926
This Strategic Plan is designed to use statistical data and information about the community, its risk factors, emergency call history, and other influencing aspects that affect the Fire District’s ability to deliver community risk reduction programs, emergency preparedness, and emergency response services. After reviewing data and information, the Administrative Staff has developed the following goals addressing the services, programs, staffing, apparatus, equipment, and facility needs necessary to continue the delivery of service to our community. The intent of this strategic plan is to facilitate the discussions necessary for planning for the future of the Fire District with the Board of Commissioners as well as members of the organization and the community that we serve.
2021 Annual Report
In 2021 Chelan Fire & Rescue responded to 1023 calls for emergency service which was an increase of 10.1% over our 2020 call volume. Even though the majority of our emergency responses were for rescue and emergency medical incidents, our calls for fire suppression average higher than most fire response agencies due to our Wildland Urban Interface. On August 14th, Chelan Fire & Rescue personnel were on the initial attack for the 25 Mile Fire that started on USFS land in the 25 Mile Creek drainage. This fire burned over 23,000 acres and was a season ending event.
