Snohomish County Fire District #15
Snohomish County Fire District #15 (aka the Tulalip Bay Fire Department) serves the northern half of the Tulalip Indian Reservation from the Priest Point area to Fire Trail Road. We respond to approximately 1000 calls a year out of one fire station with three full-time career Captains and 24 volunteer firefighter/EMTs.
Our station is staffed with four firefighters on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days per year. Like most other fire departments, 80% of our calls are medical emergencies, so all of our personnel are trained as firefighters and emergency medical technicians or EMTs. In addition, all of our rigs are outfitted with specialized medical equipment as is found in an ambulance, so the highest level of care can be offered no matter what vehicle is responding.
Fire District #15 also offers an array of other services such as water rescue, vehicle rescue, and hazardous materials first response.
