Marysville Fire District firefighters staff five strategically located fire stations 24 hours each day, 365 days per year to provide prompt emergency fire response. Our team of first responders includes about 100 career firefighters and 30 part-time firefighters trained to respond to residential, commercial, brush, vehicle, hazardous material and all other types of fires.
Our priority is protecting more than 80,000 residents and businesses in a 56-square mile area that includes the City of Marysville, Seven Lakes, Quil Ceda Village, a portion of the Tulalip Indian Reservation and unincorporated Snohomish County.
Marysville Fire District is among less than 10 percent of fire suppression agencies in Washington State with a Protection Class 3 rating or better, as determined by the Washington Surveying and Rating Bureau (WSRB).
WSRB ratings range from Class 1 to 10, with 1 being the best rating. Protection Class Ratings are used by insurance companies to help determine fire insurance premiums for properties. A lower rating may allow insurance companies to offer lower rates based on the fire department's ability to extinguish fires more quickly and effectively.

In 2019, Marysville Fire District (MFD) firefighters logged a total 25,500 hours of training to be ready to respond to any type of emergency in our community. Firefighters must complete a minimum 144 to 180 hours of training each year, depending on rank. Quarterly training is also required for fire supression, EMS, special operations, prevention and safety. All MFD firefighters must be certified in the Blue Card Incident Command Training System.
Marysville Fire District participates in the Washington State Joint Apprenticeship Training program (JATC). This is a three year apprenticeship program which earns each participant Journey Firefighter status in Washington State. Completion of a one-year probationary period is the first step in the JATC program. Our probationary program consists of a 14-week fire academy, a probationary workbook and extensive testing throughout the probationary period.
Marysville Fire also participates in block training with other first responders throughout Snohomish County. This training ensures that organizations receive the same instruction on the same topics, enabling first responders to better work together during emergency incidents.
