Vision & Mission

Department Vision

To develop and maintain an organization that successfully confronts the threats and challenges of a growing community

Chelan County Fire Protection District #3 was established to provide fire protection services to the rural community surrounding the City of Leavenworth. In 2012 the fire district, by a vote of the community, annexed Leavenworth deleting those fire protection borders.

Today Fire District #3 is a combination fire department responsible for protecting almost 30 square miles and over a billion dollars in assests. The department responds to close to 700 emergencies a year including structure fires, wildland fires, rail emergencies, haz-mat, motor vehicle accidents, and river rescue to name a few.

Below is an illustration of our promise to the community we protect, our visitors and each other.
