Stations, Apparatus & Personnel
Overview
The Moses Lake Fire Department provides a full range of emergency response servicers including Trauma Verified Life Support Ambulance Service, Fire Suppression, Fire Prevention, Fire Investigations, Hazardous Materials Response, and Ice / Water Rescue. The department is staffed by 33 career personnel. 

We operate two advanced life support (ALS) ambulances that are staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week by cross-trained Firefighters / Paramedics and Firefighters / EMTs.

Fire Station 1
Located at 701 East Third Avenue, Fire Station 1 serves as the headquarters for the Moses Lake Fire Department. The station is equipped with six drive-through apparatus bays, public meeting rooms, living quarters for on-duty staff, the department training facility, and the department administrative offices. 

The station was built in 1996 and was opened in February 1997. At the time the station opened, the department operated one staffed engine from the station and Samaritan Ambulance Service operated an Advanced Life Support ambulance service from the station.

In 2001 the Moses Lake Fire Department took over ambulance operations, increasing the number of fire department personnel and staffed apparatus at this station.
