EAST PIERCE FIRE AND RESCUE is a combination department employing approximately 126 Firefighters, 12 Volunteers, 6 Command Staff Officers, and 14 support staff. Our mission is to have exceptional people providing compassionate service and rapid response to our community's diverse needs.

With urban, suburban, and rural areas, the calls within our district vary significantly, offering challenging and exciting opportunities. Training is a vital part of our industry, as firefighters are expected to perform incredible acts of service for others; and we take it very seriously as proven with our four special operations teams, including hazmat, technical rescue, water rescue, and wildland.

We are looking for people with high levels of integrity, respect, commitment, and accountability. Successful individuals are responsive, excel in a teamwork environment, and provide excellent customer service.
