District Profile:
Wenatchee Valley Fire Department (WVFD) was created in 2022, as the result of Douglas County Fire District 2 and Chelan County Fire District 1 forming a Regional Fire Authority (RFA). The RFA is a combination department with 80 full time employees, 36 volunteers. WVFD provides emergency response to structure fires, wildland fires, medical emergencies, hazardous material incidents, and technical rescues to approximately 75,000 citizens of our 172 square mile response area which includes the City of Wenatchee, City of East Wenatchee, Rock Island, Malaga, and unincorporated areas of Douglas and Chelan County. The RFA is funded primarily through a property tax levy, bonds, protection contracts and is governed by a 6- member elected board of Commissioners. Department operations are conducted from seven, 24-hour staffed stations as well as three-auxiliary stations housing volunteer firefighters and additional apparatus. The RFA responds to over 6,000 emergency responses per year. The RFA currently has a Washington State Survey & Rating Bureau Community Protection Class of a 4 and 5.

The Fleet Mechanic is primarily responsible for maintaining and repairing all RFA vehicles, ensuring the fleet is capable and ready to respond under emergency conditions under the direction of the Lead Mechanic. The fleet consists of 65 apparatus which includes fire engines, ladder trucks, brush trucks, water tenders and staff vehicles. In order to ensure vehicle readiness, the Fleet Mechanic provides routine preventative maintenance, performs testing and inspections. The Fleet Mechanic will document all work performed as directed by the Lead Mechanic.
