Description

Welcome to the South Bay Fire Department or Thurston County Fire Protection District 8. We are a volunteer based department serving the areas of Johnson Point and South Bay in northern Thurston County.

What is now known as the South Bay Volunteer Fire Department was formed by a group of neighbors in April of 1953. The concerned volunteers began with 35 members and a loaned 1939 Ford pick-up truck with a pressurized water tank in the back. The school bus barn at the old South Bay School served as the first fire station and volunteers responded to a grand total of 15 fire calls that year.

Today the South Bay Fire Department is made up of over 60 volunteers and five paid staff, administered by a Board of Fire Commissioners. Our district serves over 7,500 residents within its 23 square mile area and our call volume exceeds 700 calls per year.
