How the Fire Board Serves You

The Board of Directors is comprised of five elected community members. The Board formulates policy and rules to carry out Fire District programs and services. In carrying out its legislative and policy-making responsibilities, the Board delegates the administrative and executive functions to the Fire Chief.

The community is invited to attend and participate in the Board meetings. Public comments are accepted at the beginning of each meeting.

Mission Statement

To ensure expedient fire and rescue service in the most cost-effective manner, and to provide responsive support to the members of Redmond Fire & Rescue.
