About Us

Central Mason Fire & EMS is the largest and busiest fire department in Mason County, Washington and is one of the busiest departments on the Olympic Peninsula. Legally known as Mason County Fire Protection District #5, our organization was established in 1953 as a small volunteer fire department. Today, our fire district covers 157 square miles and serves the communities of Allyn, Victor, Mason Lake, Pickering, Harstine Island, Bayshore, Agate, Spencer Lake, Phillips Lake, Deer Creek, Timberlakes, Lake Limerick, and John's Prairie. In an effort to better reflect the diverse community we serve, Mason County Fire Protection District #5 began doing business as Central Mason Fire & EMS in 2011.

In 2008, our organization entered into an inter-local agreement to provide services to the City of Shelton.  In 2018, Central Mason acquired Mason County Medic One and began providing primary Advanced Life Support ambulance services to south and west Mason County.  All total, Central Mason provides primary Advanced Life Support ambulance service to 11 Mason County fire districts, as well as the Mason County portions of the Olympic National Park and the Olympic National Forest.  This ambulance coverage includes an area of 937 square miles and a population of 25,197 people. We anticipate that with the acquisition of Mason County Medic One, our organization’s call volume will exceed 8,000 emergency calls annually.  

We are a combination fire department, consisting of both career and volunteer firefighters. Our career staff includes: one fire chief, one deputy chief/ fire marshal, three shift captains, six lieutenants, 11 firefighter/ paramedics, six firefighter/ EMT's, one firefighter/ mechanic, six single-role paramedics, six-single role EMT’s, and two administrative support staff members. Our volunteer staff includes: nine reserve firefighters and approximately 25 firefighters.  

Central Mason Fire & EMS operates 11 strategically located fire stations throughout the fire district. Four of these stations are staffed 24 hours a day by our career and reserve firefighters. They are: Station 51 in Allyn, Station 54 in Lake Limerick, Station 57 on Pickering Road, and Station 58 in Shelton. Our dedicated group of community-based volunteer firefighters deploy from the remaining stations.

We are proud of our accomplishments and for the people that work hard to make this organization successful. Most importantly, we are proud of the communities and people we serve.
