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.
