WE ARE NOT CLOSED! WE ARE HERE FOR YOU!
The Spokane Valley Fire Department continues to serve our community around-the-clock during the COVID-19 pandemic. All ten of our SVFD fire stations are in operation, and our firefighters are on regular 24/7 schedules.
Unless there is a life-threatening emergency, entry into fire stations is now limited to department personnel only. If you must enter, instructions are posted to ring the doorbell and crews will respond.
SVFD firefighters are, whenever possible, practicing social distancing, i.e., keeping at least six feet away from others. To slow the spread of the virus, we need everyone to practice social distancing, proper hand-washing, and to follow guidance as it evolves.
Many of our employees who serve the public from the Administration Building have set up home offices thanks to our excellent Information Systems department. With the building only minimally staffed, we ask that instead of paying a visit to our office, please call our main phone number, 1-509-928-1700. If your call is not answered, leave a message, and we will call you back soon during our regular office hours: Monday-Thursday, 8am-5pm; Friday, 8am-4pm.
In summary, SVFD remains committed to keeping our community safe, especially during these exceptional circumstances. We will be here for you when you need us, putting out fires, responding to medical emergencies, or on the other end of a phone call answering your questions about fire safety.
