Clallam County Fire Protection District No 1 (CCFPD1) is a volunteer fire department on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. Headquartered in Forks, WA, the CCFPD1 has a current staff of 24 volunteer firefighters, and operates from 2 fire stations – one in Forks, WA and the other in Beaver, WA. Our fire district provides fire and rescue services to a community of approximately 6,453 residents over 487 square miles.
The CCFPD1 has been designated an “all hazards” fire department, and is tasked to respond to structure fires, hazardous materials incidents, and motor vehicle collisions. In addition to protecting residential and commercial structures in the city of Forks, CCFPD1 also responds to calls for service in the unincorporated communities surrounding the city, to include 30 miles of State Highway 101. The fire district also has formal mutual aid agreements with neighboring districts. As a result, the CCFPD1 responds to between 150 to 200 calls for service annually.
The district is governed by a board of five publicly elected commissioners who oversee the district’s funding and operations. In February of 2016 the board of commissioners appointed a full-time, paid chief position.
