Know before you go! The ground is hot! This is one of our thermal imagers pointing at the sidewalk in front of Station 1! 135*F and in some cases, it’s even hotter! • • The National Institute for Standards and Technology says human skin begins to feel pain at a temperature of 111 degrees (think hot bathwater). At 118 degrees, human skin can sustain first-degree burns; a second-degree burn injury can occur at a temperature of 131 degrees. • • Remember to stay cool, stay hydrated, and be safe! #dcfd2 #douglasfire2 #firemanship @seekthermal

Douglas County Fire #2 along with Chelan County #1 will be conducting a live fire drill above the Gun Club on Fancher Heights this evening. This training will help prepare our firefighter for the upcoming fire season as well as reduce the fire danger in this area. You should expect to see a smoke column in this area through the evening. We do not expect any impacts to the public.
Here is a quick trailer of our Engineer position conducting a drill today. Switch over to Facebook for the full length video and description of this Engineer / Driver position.
This is our official new Fire District 2 logo, you will start to see our rebranding take place this year. Bare with us during this time until all of our trucks graphics have been switched . At times we may have two different logos which can be confusing .
