KCFCA promotes fire prevention through legislation and education of the fire service and the general public. Our organization strives to advance the fire service through regularly scheduled training events. These opportunities will be posted throughout the year on our website. 

In support of our members' profession, we offer technical information and guidance, and we continue to encourage research and development of better fire fighting techniques and equipment for fire suppression.

We strive to cultivate a closer fraternal fellowship between the branches of the fire service that serve King County, including EMS, Fire Prevention, Fire Suppression, Chief Officers, and Emergency Management personnel.

We welcome you to join our Association as we work together to make King County a safer and better place for our neighbors to live and work.


Never Forget - Monday, September 10, 2018

Seventeen years ago, on September 11, 2001, 343 firefighters, 74 police officers, and 3,000 others lost their lives in the worst terrorist attacks this country has ever experienced.

Patriot Day was signed into law by President Bush in December of 2001 to honor and remember those who died that day. 

Fire stations across the country will fly their American flags at half-staff in recognition of Patriot Day. Some will also conduct a moment of silence at 6:59 a.m., the time of the South Tower collapse in New York City.

The King County Fire Chiefs Association will never forget the tragedies at the World Trade Center, a field in Pennsylvania, and at the Pentagon. 

Burn Ban - Monday, August 13, 2018

The King County Fire Marshal and King County Fire Chiefs Association recommend extreme caution and restraint with all open fires with continued record heat and dry conditions throughout the county. Although recreational fires are not currently banned, fire authorities emphasize the danger of open fires and ask the public to carefully consider the risk to life, safety and property during these extreme conditions.  
Commitment to Service - Thursday, February 15, 2018

The King County Fire Chiefs Association is recruiting the next generation of Firefighter/Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs). King County is one of the most diverse regions in the country. We strive to hire people of color, women, immigrants, refugees, and LGBTQ individuals to help us better represent the communities we serve.  If you are committed to serving our communities and helping others, we encourage you to consider a career in the Fire and Emergency Medical services.  

We are committed to a culture of equity, where all members of our community are welcomed and valued. We work to create an equitable workplace because we know that employees who feel welcomed and valued will serve our cities and our communities best. 

Press Release: Door to Door Sales Notice - Thursday, October 12, 2017

The King County Fire Chiefs Association, along with East Pierce Fire, Maple Valley Fire, and Puget Sound Fire, would like to notify our communities of private companies traveling door-to-door offering home safety inspections and claiming they work with, or for, the local fire department.


This misrepresentation concerns us and is absolutely false. These for-profit companies are not part of, or working on behalf of, the fire department. Your local fire departments do not solicit door-to-door. Fire department personnel visiting in a non-emergency situation, will be in uniform with a badge, a nametag, and department issued identification, which we encourage you to ask for.


Please research any solicitors before allowing them into your home or signing any contract for services.


Your safety and trust are our highest priorities.
