Fire District #3 covers a diverse area of 50 square miles in southwestern Klickitat County. Amongst the towns supported are Husum, BZ Corners, Snowden and the White Salmon urban growth area. Because of the terrain diversity we cover not only towns but also dense forest land, farmland and rural countryside. A population of 4,500 is protected by fire stations: Husum, Cherry Lane, and Mountain Brook. The fire fighting force includes a part-time Chief, Assistant Chief and District Secretary/EMT as well as 30 volunteers. They continually train in order to maintain their fire fighting and EMS skills and to stay current with the latest firefighting techniques and equipment.
