Deputy Chief/Fire Marshal Dave Nalle dave@chelanfd3.org

Welcome to Chelan County Fire District #3’s Fire & Life Safety Division. Under the direction of Deputy Chief – Fire Marshal Dave Nalle, the Division is tasked with preventing fires and promoting fire and life safety through:

  • Fire and life safety compliance inspections in regulated occupancies
  • Origin and cause fire investigations
  • Fire and life safety public education
  • Fire code operational and construction permits/inspections
  • Plan reviews/inspections of fire protection systems
  • Land development reviews for code required fire department access and water supply

Chelan County Fire District #3’s jurisdiction is very diverse in vegetative and topographical beauty. As a result, we have a large wildland urban intermix of homes within the area. Part of our Fire Prevention responsibility is to interface with land management agencies and communities around the area with a goal of assessing homes and making Fire Wise recommendation for vegetation clearing and hazardous fuels reduction.
