Fire Chief's Message

On behalf of the entire staff, I would like to welcome you to the Northshore Fire Department, an invaluable resource to the residents and visitors of Kenmore and Lake Forest Park. The men and women of Northshore Fire work to save lives, protect property, improve response outcomes and increase public education around fire safety.

The department is staffed by professional firefighters trained to provide fire, rescue, and emergency medical services. In addition, we are fortunate to have an established in-house training consortium that educates and prepares our firefighters for any situation that may arise, such as: technical rescue (high and low angle rope, confined space and trench), vehicle extrication, hazardous materials and water rescue.

The fire department is continually searching for opportunities to improve our services, promote efficiency, and increase community and firefighter safety. We prioritize regional collaboration as an avenue of fiscal and operational efficiency, and improved community service.

Thank you for visiting Northshore Fire Department and we welcome all inquiries.
