Burn Ban in Effect
UPDATE – The following update is from Washington State Parks & Recreation:
NOTICE: Effective immediately, CAMPFIRES ARE PROHIBITED in ALL Washington State Parks –including designated fire rings– through September 30. Use of solid charcoal briquettes also is prohibited.
You may use liquid gas and propane camp cooking stoves that do not use charcoal and have on and off controls.
The August heat is upon us, conditions are dry across the state and the risk of wildfire is high. We want to keep our visitors safe and ensure our beautiful lands and parks are protected.
We thank you for your patience and understanding!

Welcome to Fire District 1
Pacific County Fire Protection District 1 was officially formed on October 7, 1940. It is a progressive, full-service fire district providing fire suppression, emergency medical services, and public safety education to unincorporated areas of the Long Beach Peninsula including the State Parks, and the communities of Seaview, Klipsan, Ocean Park, Nahcotta, Oysterville, and Surfside.
Fire District 1 is a combination department, with volunteer and career personnel providing services over 30 square miles in South Pacific County. We serve approximately 6,000 full-time residents, and up to 35,000 citizens during the busy summer season. Two stations are staffed 24-hours a day within the Fire District 1 response area. Volunteers also respond from three additional stations that are strategically located throughout the Peninsula. Fire District 1 members responded to 2,009 emergency calls last year.
