Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue Hires Six New Fire Fighters

Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue is proud to announce the addition of six new Fire


The group has been attending orientation for the past week and last night they were
given their Oath of Office at the Board of Fire Commissioners meeting.
Four of the new hires will be attending the Washington State Fire Training Academy in
North Bend and will graduate at the end of July. The remaining two hires have
previously completed training and will start working on shift next week.
We’d like to thank the citizens of Central Kitsap for supporting the Maintenance and
Operations Levy this past November, making these new hires a possibility.
Once all six fire fighters are working on shift it will allow for increased staffing of career
fire fighters at the Chico fire station, Station 64, thus improving current response times.v
