Pierce 23 Fire and Rescue typically responds to about 260 or so calls a year. Our district covers an area of 67 square miles, including the communities of Ashford, Elbe, Alder, and Big Creek. We also provide and receive mutual aid with the surrounding areas of South Pierce Fire & Rescue, Eatonville Fire Department, Mineral Fire Department, and Mount Rainier National Park.

Our members make themselves available to respond to calls for service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by either responding from home/work or by working standby shifts at the stations. We respond to calls including structural fires, medical emergencies, vehicle collisions, water rescues, technical rescues, wildland fires, and other citizen assistance.

This page presents information about our call volume in the last few years.
