District & Services

LWFR is a full-service Fire, Rescue, and EMS department. Our membership is made of your dedicated neighbors who meet several times a month to train, learn, and prepare for any emergency. Unlike many fully-funded fire departments, our volunteer service requires our firefighters to respond from home or work. Their service is indicative of the unique community we enjoy. Where, regardless of our individualities, we all come together in the protection of our common home and each other.


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. LWFR provides service to approximately 100 square miles within our district. 


Response areas include Lake Wenatchee, Fish Lake, Tall Timber, Trinity, Chiwawa River Pines,  Beaver Valley Hill, Plain, Ponderosa, River Road, Coles Corner, Winton, Chiwaukum, Nason Creek, Merrit, and East Stevens Pass. 


Our district serves a unique community with vast recreational opportunities. We have lakes, rivers, mountains, hiking trails, Forest Service roads, campgrounds, full-time residences and part-time vacation homes.
