Message from the Chief

Fire Chief Gregory WrightTaking care of the citizens of Olympia is why the Olympia Fire Department exists. Every day and night, 365 days per year, our firefighters respond to fire and medical needs in our community. Most of those needs are emergency in nature but emergency or not, the men and women of the department respond with the same level of professionalism, caring and compassion no matter what the reason for the call.

Daily, members of our department assure that the City's new construction is safe and existing businesses are prepared for emergency. Our front office staff is ready to greet you and provide non-emergency answers weekdays from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Do you need help preparing for an emergency or disaster? We can help with that too. Call us on our business line 360-753-8348, anytime, we are glad to help.

The best way to learn about the Department is to view our 2017 Annual Report. It shows the work we completed in 2017 and compares it to our output in 2016. Another important document is our Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan shows what we are working on to make the department even better.

 I hope you never have to call us for an emergency but rest-assured that if you call 9-1-1 we will be there with our professional, skilled, compassionate responders to address your need.
