Message From the Chief
I am proud to welcome you to the Eastside Fire & Rescue (EF&R) website. It is my privilege to lead the men and women of EF&R who take tremendous pride in their community and work hard to provide you with top quality services every day. No matter where you live your nearest fire station is never more than a few minutes away and staffed by crews of fast, caring, innovative firefighters. It is our mission and purpose to serve you.
EF&R is a highly collaborative and innovative partnership serving the communities of Sammamish, Issaquah, North Bend, King County Fire District 38 and King County Fire District 10(which includes the City of Carnation). We serve a growing population of 130,000 over a service area of 190 square miles.
The highly dedicated workforce includes career and volunteer firefighters supported by a talented group of support staff. Service is delivered from 14 stations strategically located throughout the service area. EF&R provides an “all hazard” response service, our members are trained and equipped to provide outstanding fire, medical, hazardous materials, technical rescue, and any other emergency service need that may arise.
We are guided and supported by a Board of Directors made up of elected leaders from each of the Eastside partners. The Board places great emphasis on the value of service and collaboration providing a highly supportive framework that allows the agency to achieve greater efficiency than any single partner could achieve on their own.
If I, or any member of the Eastside Team, can ever be of service please do not hesitate to contact me.
