Welcome to Spokane County Fire District 8
Seventy years ago, a group of concerned citizens met in a small home in the Glenrose community and formed Spokane County Fire District 8. After lengthy deliberation, the group agreed upon the type of fire protection they wanted for their community, elected its first fire commissioners, and purchased its first fire engine. As we celebrate 70 years of service we realize a lot has changed since 1947, but the direction and support of our citizens in our growing community remains essential to our delivery of effective and efficient fire and medical services.
Spokane County Fire District 8 operates under the State of Washington laws and codes governing fire departments by direction of a three-person Board of Fire Commissioners: Andy Rorie; Lee Boling, and Chuck Vyverberg.
