The La Conner Fire Department (LCFD ) has served our community for over 100 years. The Fire Department became an official department of the Town in 1932. In the 1960's local Fire Districts were formed but LCFD continued to serve the Town and many of the areas outside of Town.

For over 25 years, the La Conner Fire Department has worked under an interlocal agreement between Fire District 13 and the Town. The latest agreement was developed in 2004. LCFD is strictly a Town department that answers calls in portions of the district under the guidelines of the current interlocal agreement; these guidelines change periodically.

LCDF had the first heart defibrillator to be used by an all volunteer department in the State of Washington. The La Conner Volunteer Fire Fighter Association raised money throughout the community to purchase the defibrillator and special protocols were developed by the Skagit County Medical Control Officer. LCDF was also the second department in the county to have a Compressed Air Foam (CAF) pumper. Compressed air is a very effective fire fighting tool which quickly knocks down flames by robbing them of oxygen and increasing the effectiveness of water. It also reduces post fire damage by reducing the need for water to fight fires.

Children's Fire Safety House
Annually, the Fire Service conducts a 3 day fire safety program at La Conner Elementary School. The program provides fire safety training to pre-school and elementary school children.

La Conner Volunteer Firemen's Association
The Firemen's Association is a private non-profit organization which provides fundraising and community support to our Fire Department. They sponsor an Easter Egg Hunt and a St. Patrick's Day Dance at Maple Hall which is the Fire Department's major fundraiser. Along with the Fire Service, the Association participates in all community parades. The Firemen's Association also sponsors the Fire Service Museum on 1st Street in La Conner. The museum provides a wonderful opportunity to view "old-time" fire equipment and gear - a 1884 horse drawn, hand-pumped fire-fighting apparatus as well as artifacts, photographs, correspondence and reminiscences of pioneer days in Skagit Valley.
