Fire District 1 is dedicated to protecting life, property and the environment for the nearly 200,000 residents we serve in the communities of unincorporated south Snohomish County and our partner cities Brier, Edmonds and Mountlake Terrace.
We provide full-time staffing at 12 fire stations strategically located to provide prompt emergency response across a 45-square-mile area. All firefighters are certified as either emergency medical technicians or paramedics. That’s important because most of the 911 calls we receive are medical emergencies. Firefighters specializing in hazardous material response and technical rescue are also on duty daily.

Prevention and educationIn addition to standing ready to respond to a wide range of emergency situations, we’re also here to help you prevent those emergencies from happening in the first place. Your firefighters work with full-time staff to provide fire and injury prevention services, public education and innovative services such as our community paramedic program.
Stewardship and accountability
Our commitment to provide excellent public service is matched by another commitment we take just as seriously: to be accountable to those we serve. As stewards of your tax dollars, our elected commissioners and staff continue to implement regional partnerships and innovative solutions to improve efficiency and service delivery.
