Lake Wenatchee Fire & Rescue is a Volunteer

Fire District that was established in 2015 with the merger of CCFD #9 and CCFD #4. LWFR serves Plain and the Greater Lake Wenatchee Area.

Our district serves a unique community with a vast majority of recreational opportunities. Lakes, Rivers, Mountains, Hiking Trails, Forest Service Roads, Campgrounds, Full-Time/Part-Time Vacation Homes, Stevens Pass, and Highway 2 are some of the major landmarks that make up our beautiful area. 

These terrains bring a wide variety of training requirements to the district. Lake Wenatchee Firefighters train in Structural Firefighting, Wildland Firefighting, Emergency Medical Services, Emergency Vehicle Incident Prevention, Water Rescue, Ice Rescue, Snowmobile Rescue, Technical Rescue, Avalanche Search and Rescue, and Automobile Extrication Training. 

Lake Wenatchee Fire & Rescue responded to 389 calls for service in 2020. Our members consist of dedicated neighbors that meet several times a month to train and prepare for emergencies. In the event of an emergency, Lake Wenatchee Firefighters respond from home or work to provide care and compassion to those in need.
