PACIFIC COUNTY - Pacific County Fire District No. 1 is accepting applications for new Volunteer Firefighters. You only need the desire to help your community, and we will train you to be part of the Fire District No. 1 team. Once trained, you will respond with our team of emergency medical technicians, firefighters, and paramedics.

Applicants need be at least 18 years of age, a high school graduate or equivalent with a valid driver's license, and pass the written and physical examination. The District will provide a free complete doctor's exam.

Pacific County Fire District No. 1 covers approximately 30 square miles and serves a population of more than 6,000. During 2004, Fire District No. 1 responded to more than 2,400 fire and medical emergencies from one of our two staffed stations or six satellite stations.
