Overview of Committees
Annually elected committee members consist of Association President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, Fire Chiefs, past President, and 2 other Association members.
The mission of the Auxiliary is to provide support for the Chelan District 7 Firefighters and Association and to promote community awareness in as many ways as possible through volunteering, fundraising, community outreach, and fellowship.
The Auxiliary also coordinates and implements fundraisers for the Association, allowing the firefighters to keep their focus and energies on training and fire and rescue activities.
The Auxiliary is open to any interested individuals who are willing to work towards these goals. Auxiliary members are encouraged, although not required, to join Chelan Fire and Rescue through simple application.
The Auxiliary meets monthly at the main Chelan Fire Station on Wapato Ave E.

Parade Truck Committee
The Chelan Parade Truck is a 1958 GMC Fire Engine that was originally in service on the South Shore of Lake Chelan until the mid-90s. Retired by Chelan Fire and Rescue, it has been fully restored by a team of volunteer Chelan Firefighters in a major project that started in 2011. The Parade Truck was completely disassembled (including the engine), meticulously cleaned, sanded, painted and polished, re-upholstered and re-assembled by hand. A labor of love from start to finish!
The restoration and maintenance is an ongoing project funded by the Firefighters Association. We proudly use it now for many community parades and events, offering rides to the delight of kids and grownups of all ages!
The Parade Truck Committee has been formed to keep the Chelan Parade Truck in good working order so that it can be utilized for various community events, parades, and for educational purposes
