Welcome to Camano Island Fire and Rescue
We’re proud to share with you the good work of the men and women of Camano Island Fire and Rescue, and give our thanks to the community for its tremendous support. From the “man on the street” who becomes the first responder at an accident scene, to the chaplains and auxiliaries that offer their moral support and time and energy; from career firefighters working alongside dedicated and trained volunteers, to the office staff who get the behind-the-scenes work done, we are all working together to ensure the safety of property and lives. Our Mission, Vision, and Values bring clarity to the processes and relationships here at CIFR, and we are working with you to update our strategic plan, guiding the next six years. Mission Statement
Hiring! We are looking for firefighters to join our team!
