About Lewis County Fire District 5

Lewis County Fire District 5 was established in 1955 to serve the community including the town of Napavine which was annexed into the fire district as it exits today.  Over the years many things have changed in this community, and with the changes your fire district has also grown. From limited beginnings, with hard work and dedication, Fire District 5 continues to answer the call for service when people need help most.

Serving an area of nearly 66 square miles and a population between 10,000 to 12,000 residents, Fire District 5 has four stations, 4 engine companies, 1 water tender, 3 EMS transport ambulances, 3 rescue/brush trucks, and 2 incident command response units, and 1 support vehicle.  Oversight for Fire District 5 is provided by a Board of three elected fire commissioners who each hold a 6 year term. The Board appointed a full time Fire Chief to manage the day to day operations and administration of the District.

A board secretary position has been combined to include the duties of the administrative assistant to the chief.  Three full time Firefighter/EMT’s positions are scheduled to best meet the needs of the department. Shifts vary from 9 hour day shifts to some staffing that provide 24 hour coverage to meet the call volume.  Two firefighter positions are partially funded through federal grant.

The department operates a Basic Life Support Transport Program (Ambulance) with mostly volunteer staff around the clock 24 hours a day. In addition to providing this service District 5 partners with Lewis County Medic 1 to provide a Single Paramedic unit that is housed out of station 53, Mary’s Corner.

The district maintains mutual aid agreements with its neighbors to provide for and receive additional resources for calls that require more resources than one agency is able to provide.
