We are proud to announce that Engine 336 was officially placed into service on February 4th, 2024. This new engine company will primarily serve the North Auburn area. It is currently stationed at Station 31 until the new Station 36 construction is complete. Engine 336 will relieve Station 31 of a significant portion of their call volume, which was over 6,000 calls in 2023, and it will provide better service to our citizens in North Auburn.

Thank you to our citizens for the continued support and we look forward to better serving our community!

Great work advocating to better serve your communities.

Where is 36 going to be located?

Much needed. That area was busy 10 years ago and has only continued to be developed. Bravo VRFA!

When does construction start on station 36?

When they going to start breaking new 338

Where is Station 31?

The Boars Head Distributer truck used the same colors.

Your Valley Professional Firefighters Fighters on Tender 334 are currently operating on a residential fire in Maple Valley in Puget Sound RFA’s response area with Puget Sound Firefighters Local 1747 Renton Firefighters IAFF 864 and King County Paramedics Local 2595

Fires in areas without hydrants can be challenging and water tenders are used to get large volumes of water to the scene of the fire. Water tenders are used for wildland fires and our tender is also an important resource in south King County for incidents such as this.

BALLOTS DUE TOMORROW, NOV. 7TH!

We are asking for your support in approving Valley Regional Fire Authority Proposition 1! By approving Proposition 1, the Valley Regional Fire Authority will be able to improve service to all citizens of Auburn, Algona, and Pacific. 

WHAT WILL PROPOSITION 1 DO? 

-It will enable the VRFA to build a new station in the rapidly growing North Auburn area.
-Relocate Station 38 to better serve the communities of Algona and Pacific
-Replace Station 31 that does not meet modern seismic, health, and safety standards for fire stations.
-Improve training, support, and maintenance facilities to ensure firefighters are ready and have the proper tools in working order to serve the community in their time of need. 

Proposition 1 funds will NOT be used for personnel or salary increases. 

Thank you for your support!
FILL THE BOOT- Look for your off duty Valley Professional Fire Fighters at the intersection of Lakeland Hills Way and Lake Tapps Parkway SE today from 12:00-4:00. All money collected goes directly to the Muscular Dystrophy Association! We look forward to seeing you!
Today we remember the 343 firefighters and thousands of civilians who lost their lives on this day 22 years ago, as well as many who have died of illness related to ground zero. We are also remembering all of the survivors who were affected by this tragedy and will share a survival story.

“On 9/11, Lieutenant Mickey Kross was doing paperwork at the FDNY Engine Company 16 firehouse when his company received the order to dispatch to the World Trade Center. He reported to the North Tower’s 23rd floor. 
Upon orders to evacuate, he was descending stairwell B when there was a loud roar. The building was falling. Kross curled his body into a corner of the stairwell. 

A few hours later, sheltered by the stairway, Kross, 11 other members of the FDNY, a PAPD officer, and one civilian emerged relatively unscathed into a landscape of twisted steel and rubble.”

We recently received the unfortunate news that our Brother and friend Bill Mack has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer. Brother Mack was a member of Local 1352 beginning in 1992 when he was hired with the then Auburn Fire Department, until he took a position as a Deputy Chief with East Pierce Fire & Rescue and Rescue in 2021. 

Bill had a great impact on our membership, firefighters across the state, and our community during the 29+ years that he was a member of Local 1352 . Brother Mack served as a District Representative for the Washington State Council of Fire Fighters, Vice-President of our Executive Board, and he negotiated several contracts as a member of our Negotiations Team.

Our community was also lucky to have him. In addition to his excellent work on emergency responses, Bill volunteered countless hours of his personal time to various charitable and community outreach programs such as the Nick of Time Foundation.

Brother Mack has given so much to firefighters and the community. This is our chance to give back to him and to show how much we appreciate all that he has done for us. Please consider donating to help the Mack Family with medical expenses, daily needs, and other expenses while Bill takes on this fight. You can see the attached flyer for ways to donate or click the link below.

Please keep Brother Bill Mack and the entire Mack family in your thoughts and prayers during this challenging time.

We cannot say thank you enough to the men and women who have served our great country. Happy Veterans Day.
Twenty years later and it is still impossible to put emotions from September 11th, 2001 into words. We will never forget all of the men and women who lost their lives that day. We also remember the hundreds who have died since then, as well as the thousands who are sickened, as a result of the rescue and recovery efforts that followed.

Please take a moment to remember the hundreds of thousands of men and women who have given their lives while serving our great country.
As Women’s month comes to an end, we would like to recognize the women of Local 1352. These women work tirelessly serving the community. We would also like to recognize recently retired Fire Marshal Karen Stewart, who was the first female chief officer within the VRFA/legacy Auburn Fire Dept. Also, Capt. Janeen Ruge who retired last year and was the first female firefighter with the Auburn Fire Department.

We could not do this event without the help of our great community members and businesses.

Thank you for your consideration and we wish you a happy holiday season!

WE NEED YOUR HELP! We are in the final days of fundraising for our 2020 Toys for Kids drive and we are still short of our goal!

We take great pride in the fact that these gifts go right back into our community. Thanks to the kind donations that we receive each year, we are typically able to support hundreds of families in the Auburn, Algona, and Pacific communities.
