Mission Statement

Our Vision Statement:
Providing Service and Solutions to Ever-Changing Community Needs

Our Mission Statement:
The mission of Central Pierce Fire & Rescue is to quickly, skillfully and compassionately respond to the needs of our community by safely providing:

  • Fire Suppression Prevention and Education
  • Emergency Medical Services
  • Hazardous Materials Mitigation
  • Special Operations and Technical Rescue

We, the members, proudly serve our community with honor, courage and commitment.
This is the standard by which we live.


Central Pierce Fire & Rescue (also known as Pierce County Fire District 6) was formed in 1996, following a merger of Fire District 6 (Parkland/Midland), Fire District 7 (Spanaway) and Fire District 9 (Summit/South Hill). In 2009, Central Pierce grew to include the City of Puyallup through annexation and the community of North Puyallup through a merger. These mergers have provided for more efficient and effective service to the communities that now make up Central Pierce Fire & Rescue.

The District provides 24 hour emergency medical and fire suppression protection to approximately 198,110 citizens and covers an 84 square mile area encompassing the communities of Parkland, Midland, Spanaway, South Hill, Puyallup, Summit and Frederickson.

Central Pierce Fire & Rescue (CPF&R) operates twelve fire stations, all of which are staffed 24 hours a day by career personnel. Eight of our stations house paramedic units to provide emergency medical services (both basic and advanced life support) and transport patients to emergency care centers.
In addition to fire suppression and emergency medical services, CPF&R also provides hazardous materials response and technical rescue services. Technical rescue involves any situation where life is in danger (drowning, climbing accident, building collapse, etc.).
CPF&R also provides training and information to the public on fire and injury prevention, CPR, first aid, fire extinguisher usage and other safety related topics. The District provides free smoke alarms (with installation) and low-cost bicycle and multi-sport helmets to the community.
