ABOUT OUR STATION

Fire District 6 was established in 1991. The district operated out of a single fire station located in Furport until 2017. With the purchase of land at Skookum Rendezvous RV Resort, a second station was constructed to service the northern portion of the district. Furport Station features equipment bays, large meeting room, kitchen, and outdoor rest area. Volunteer firefighters from the station respond to fire and medical emergencies with a fire engine, brush truck, water tender and emergency vehicle. The district has an excellent relationship with the Kalispel Fire Department to the north and the Pend Oreille Paramedics to the south.

Captain JD Allison leads the team of six volunteers who respond from this station.

POFD 6 & SPOFR MERGER APPROVED BY VOTERS!

Pend Oreille Fire District 6 and South Pend Oreille Fire and Rescue merged at the end of 2019 with strong community support. Under the direction of the SPOFR Fire Chief, Furport personnel continue to serve the Fire District 6 area. The merger was a way of improving access to paid staff while providing more assets to district members in order to serve the community better. The merger brings forth a way to help control costs by the reduction of duplication in services like administration and more.
