POFD 6 & SPOFR MERGER APPROVED BY VOTERS! On behalf of Pend Oreille Fire District 6 and South Pend Oreille Fire & Rescue, I would like to say thank you to the community for voting yes on the proposed merger. Our local stations will remain open and the firefighters will continue to serve our Fire District 6 area. We are improving access to paid staff while providing more assets to our current members to serve you better. The merger brings forth a way to help control costs. With consolidation, we can reduce duplication in services like administration and more. Click on the District News link above for more information. Chief Mike Nokes
