Fire district opens stations to public

SEQUIM — Clallam County Fire District 3 opens its six Sequim-area stations and its training/maintenance facility in Carlsborg from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday.

The event is the end cap to Fire Prevention Week, fire district staff said.

Stations and locations include Station 31, 4721 Sequim-Dungeness Way; Station 32, 256702 U.S. Highway 101; Station 33, 70 Carlsborg Road; Station 34, 323 N. Fifth Ave.; Station 35, 121 Sunshine Ave. (Diamond Point), and Station 37, 4 Sophus Road (Blyn). The training/maintenance facility is at 255 Carlsborg Road.

“It seems like a good time and opportunity to show folks who we are, what we have,” said Assistant Fire Chief Dan Orr.

Career firefighters will be at their stations as well as volunteers, district administrators and commissioners. They’ll be available to answer commonly asked questions.

“We think there will be some great picture moments to put fire helmets on kids, and educate some folks with history at each station,” Orr said.
