The Fire District is overseen by a Board of Directors that consists of five publicly elected residents or property owners.  Our Board Members serve four-year, staggered terms. The Board establishes fire district policy through the passage of resolutions and ordinances.  The Board also adopts the fire district budget and approves appropriations and levies taxes.

Lead by Chief John Ingrao, the Fire District is staffed by a combination of 10 career and 30 volunteer personnel.  We proudly protect the rural communities of Marmot, Cherryville, Brightwood, Wemme, Welches, Zig Zag, Rhododendron and Government Camp from our 3 fire stations.  Last year, we responded to just under 1000 emergency calls for assistance from our 6000 full time and up to 15,000 seasonal residents.
