Snohomish County Fire District 5 proudly serves approximately 10,000 people living in the Sultan & Startup areas. We operate out of two fire stations and protect 72 square miles of suburban, rural, and wilderness areas in east Snohomish County.

The department employs a Fire Chief, two Deputy Chiefs, five full-time firefighters, and 20-30 part-time/volunteers who respond to approximately 1400 alarms annually.

Fire District Goals

  • Continue efforts to foster a culture of public service that meets the public expectation of professionalism, compassion, and kindness.
  • Develop a plan to lower the insurance ratings in the District.
  • Develop a public safety education program that fosters community resiliency in times of disaster.
  • Develop an organizational structure that integrates full-time, part-time, and volunteer personnel.
  • Find alternatives to apparatus replacement that recognize the increasing initial purchase, maintenance, and fuel costs.
  • Invest in technology that will improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the District.
  • Maintain a fiscally responsible financial plan that will support existing levels of service.
