                                                                                                                WHEN TO GO

When the firefighters of Okanogan County Fire District 6 are needed, they stop whatever they’re doing, go to the station, get into firefighting gear, climb into an assigned engine, and then respond to the emergency.  Their response is 24 hours a day, 365 days year.  And, believe it or not, there is a method to this “madness”.

Okanogan County Fire District 6 operates out of 4 stations, located in Carlton, Twisp, Winthrop, and Mazama.  Firefighters are assigned to a “home station”, normally close to where they live.  Each station has a crew of trained volunteers, led by a station Captain, also a volunteer.                                 

Each firefighter carries a pager that alerts or “tones” them when there is an emergency. 
When the Okanogan County 9-1-1 dispatcher receives an emergency call, an alert is sent to the two closest fire stations to that emergency via the emergency communications network.  When a responder’s station is dispatched, their pager will “tone”, then give the nature and location of the emergency. The other two stations and their responders only go if additional equipment and personnel are needed or there is a second emergency call.

Your Okanogan County Fire District 6 firefighters are here to serve you every day of the year, night or day, regardless of the weather conditions.
