Welcome to Spokane County Fire District 8

Spokane County Fire District 8 provides a full range of services that include fire suppression, emergency medical services, fire prevention, education and investigation, and associated support and maintenance services to our 22,351 citizens in a 110 square mile area in south Spokane County. SCFD8 members responded to 3,227 calls for service in 2019 from the District's four fire stations located in the Moran, Valleyford, Ponderosa, and Saltese areas. Each station is staffed twenty-four hours a day with a combination of career, part-time, volunteer and resident volunteer personnel.

Spokane County Fire District 8 operates under the State of Washington laws and codes governing fire departments by direction of a three-person Board of Fire Commissioners: Andy Rorie; Lee Boling, and Greg Hesse.

 

DNR Fire Danger Rating System

The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has implemented a new fire danger rating system in Washington State. Instead of basing a fire danger rating by county, a Fire Danger Rating Area (FDRA) is based on geographic areas that share similar fuels, climate, and topography, in addition to administrative boundaries.

When you phone DNR's burn hotline ( 1-800-323-BURN) to find out about burn restrictions in your area, you will be asked to enter the first four letters of your county (SPOK), you will then be directed to choose your FDRA. Most of Spokane County Fire District 8 falls within the Foothills RFDA. You can find your specific FDRA by using DNR's Fire Danger and Outdoor Burning risk map https://fortress.wa.gov/dnr/protection/firedanger/.
