Newaukum Valley Fire & Rescue employs various skillsets and certification bearers to address fire and hazardous material (HazMat) response. (paramedic) and BLS (EMT) emergency medical services (EMS) to the District. In 2014, the agency entered into a contract with American Medical Response (AMR) to provide a fulltime paramedic housed out of Station 5-1 in Napavine. This is an ongoing contract requiring annual renewal. During times that two or more requests for paramedic services are made during a call in progress, additional paramedics from Chehalis, Centralia, or South County Medic One are requested to assist. The District owns a total of three ambulances, two are stationed in Napavine at Station 5-1, and one is stationed at Mary's Corner at Station 5-3. Trained volunteers augment the on duty crew when necessary to provide adequate staffing levels during multiple calls or when a response requires additional resources. If necessary, mutural aid is requested from surrounding districts, departments, and/or private ambulance services to help ensure that adequate staffing levels are met during all circumstances.
