About the Fire Department

Volunteer Firefighter/EMT’s spend considerable personal time each year training for and responding to emergency incidents. These friends and neighbors drop whatever they’re doing — night or day, holiday’s, bad weather or good — to respond to the community’s emergencies. It’s reassuring to know when you or a loved one is having a medical emergency; is in a car wreck, or your house is on fire, that trained, experienced, volunteer emergency responders will be there in a matter of minutes.


Consider volunteering for the Lake Cavanaugh Fire Department. It’s rewarding and doesn’t take as much time as you think. Not everyone has to carry a fire hose into a burning house; anyone over 18 can contribute to the emergency response effort. Please stop by the Lake Cavanaugh Fire Station during one of our drill nights at 6:00 pm or call Scott Lemke 360-303-3997. Click here to see a list of our current volunteers.
