Pierce 23 Fire and Rescue is a municipal agency that provides fire protection, fire prevention and emergency medical services to the 2,500 residents of the towns of Ashford, Elbe, and Alder in rural south Pierce County, at the Gateway to Mount Rainier. We have four stations, 18 apparatus, 23 active volunteers and 3 paid staff members who provide 24/7 coverage for District #23, a coverage area of approximately 67 square miles. The district has two major state highways (State Route 7 and State Route 706) and serves as a vital transportation corridor to the south west side of Mount Rainier National Park. The district also has major water resources including the Nisqually River and Alder Lake, a 7-mile long reservoir ending at Alder Dam, which provides power to thousands of homes in Pierce County.

This website is designed to be a source of information for residents, visitors, fire fighters, and neighboring fire departments.

2016 Fire Department Open House and Community Blood Drive
It is our pleasure to announce that your local fire department, Pierce County Fire District 23, will be hosting a fire department open house on Saturday, July 23, 2015 from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm at Station 87 (Headquarters). The address is 29815 State Route 706 East, Ashford, WA 98304.

The open house will include: free blood pressure checks, educational booths, games for the kids, a landing by an Airlift Northwest helicopter (weather and operations dependent), and more. This would also be a fantastic opportunity for your children to learn firsthand what to do about Fire Safety and how to get out of the house in the event of a house fire. For more information about this event, please click here.

One week later, on Saturday, July 30, 2016 from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM, Cascade Regional Blood Services will be at Station 87 (29815 State Route 706 East, Ashford, WA 98304) for a Community Blood Drive.

If you're interested in being a blood donor, please contact Lt. Scott Beason to get on the schedule. We are looking for at least 30 volunteers to help with blood donations at an especially critical time of the year for Cascade Regional Blood Services.

We hope to see you at both events!
