Fleet Mechanic
Vashon Island Fire & Rescue
Vashon, Washington
SalaryStarting at $82,700
Located in the Puget Sound, just a 20-minute ferry ride from West Seattle, Vashon and Maury Islands consist of two connected beautiful rural islands with a small unincorporated town. Miles of lightly traveled, pine-edged country roads make bicycling, walking, and jogging popular activities. Vashon Island is a patchwork of pastoral and natural settings, and a great deal of the island is 5- and 10-acre parcels that maintain the rural feel. In the summer, you can visit one of the many farms, rent a kayak, take sailing lessons, or explore Vashon’s beaches. Whether you are petting an alpaca, slowing for deer crossing the road, or watching eagles soar, Vashon is a wonderful place to be.
Vashon Island Fire & Rescue (VIFR) primarily operates out of the District’s centrally-located main station, which is staffed around the clock. Two other stations provide access to apparatus for volunteers responding from home and/or other portions of the island. Together the stations house four aid cars, three first due engines, a reserve engine, four tenders, a support truck, a small Zodiac boat, an ATV/Gator, and other vehicles. The District also has a training center and a comprehensive vehicle and facilities maintenance shop.
Under the direction of the Fire Chief, the primary responsibility of the Fleet Mechanic is to maintain and repair all Fire District vehicles, ensuring a fleet capable and ready to respond under emergency conditions. In order to ensure vehicle readiness, the Fleet Mechanic provides routine preventative maintenance, performs testing and inspections and is available for emergency, as well as routine repair work. The Fleet Mechanic will document all work performed and keep comprehensive records for all apparatus. This is a full-time, non-exempt union represented position. The Fleet Mechanic is also involved with and may lead design and acquisition of new apparatus.
