Presenting Marysville Fire District
Marysville Fire District is dedicated to providing quality emergency response and prevention services to the community with integrity, pride and professionalism.
A Cooperative Government Entity...
The Marysville Fire District was formed in 1992 as the result of a contractual agreement between the City of Marysville and Snohomish County Fire District 12 as a means of reducing duplication of efforts and expanding services to the community. Our organization once again expanded in 1998 to include the consolidation of Snohomish County Fire District 20 into Fire District 12. In 2002, Fire District 20 formally merged into Fire District 12. The responsibility of overseeing the operations of the Marysville Fire District falls to a six member Board of Directors, three of which are Fire District 12 Commissioners, with the other three designated by the Mayor of the City of Marysville to serve on the Board.
Our Fire District protects approximately 55 square miles including the City of Marysville, Seven Lakes, Quilceda Village, the East side of Tulalip Indian Reservation, as well as a diverse expanse of un-incorporated Snohomish County.
The population of the Marysville Fire District is estimated to be 71,998 residents. Approximately 58,040 citizens live in the City of Marysville, 13,958 in un-incorporated areas of Fire District 12. The Marysville Fire District responds to approximately 10,000 calls annually. Of these calls, approximately 70% are EMS based incidents, 25% are non-fire/non EMS based incidents, and 5% are fire based incidents.
The Marysville Fire District employs 85+ full-time personnel, who operate the Fire Districts' five fire stations (Station 61, 62, 63, 65, 66). These dedicated professionals staff 4 Engine Companies, 1 Ladder Company, 3 Aid Cars, and 2 Medic Units on a 24/7 basis. Full-time personnel are supplemented by 45 part-time Firefighters. There are three emergency response shifts, with each of the shifts under the command of a Battalion Chief.
The Administration office staff includes the Fire Chief, Assistant Chief, Fire Marshal, Assistant Fire Marshal, Deputy Chief of Support Services, Human Resources Manager, Finance Manager, Fire Inspector, and two office employees.
Marysville Fire District also participates in two countywide special operations response groups. Our Hazardous Materials Team works in conjunction with, and as a part of, the county wide response team. The Fire District also has a Technical Rescue Team that responds throughout the county on various rescue responses as part of a county Technical Rescue Team.
