Phase 1 Burn Ban In Effect

As hot and dry weather conditions continue the outdoor fire danger has increased. In response Kitsap County is issuing a fire safety burn ban in unincorporated areas of the County effective July 14, 2014.

This is a Phase 1 burn ban and applies to all outdoor burning except for small recreational fires in established fire pits at approved camp grounds or private property with the owner’s permission. The use of gas and propane self-contained stoves and barbeques will continue to be allowed under the ban.

Recreational fires must:

  • Be built in a metal or concrete fire pit, such as those typically found in designated campgrounds; and not be used as debris disposal
  • Grow no larger than three feet in diameter
  • Be located in a clear spot free from any vegetation for at least 10 feet in a horizontal direction, including at least 25 feet away from any structure and allow 20-foot vertical clearance from overhanging branches
  • Be attended at all times by an alert individual and equipment capable of extinguishing the fire                                                                                                                                                                           This ban remains in effect until further notice.

Learn Heartsaver CPR for FREE!

Due to a generous donation by the Medic One Foundation, Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue will now be offering FREE Heartsaver CPR classes starting on July 10th and then every 3rd Thursday of the month starting in August.

Classes are limited to 25 participants and will be held at Station 41, 7600 Old Military Road NE, from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm. 

You can call our main line, 360-447-3550, to reserve a spot.

    Address Signs

At this time Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue does NOT have any address signs available. We're currently looking for funding so that we may continue the program, but in the meantime we encourage you to make sure your home is properly marked in case of emergency. You can find address sign materials at any home improvement store or local sign shop.

We'll update this site as soon as we're able to provide this service once again.  Thank you!
