Rural 7 Fire & Rescue is a volunteer department in Goldendale, WA serving in Klickitat County. Our goal is to serve the community and communities around the Goldendale area in keeping them safe. We respond to fires of all types and in all types of terrain and the rescue goes out on calls from vehicle accidents to people who are having health issues or may have had an accident.

We have two functioning departments within one department: 1. Fire Department 2: Rescue Team. The Rescue team is a separate branch in the fire department. Volunteer members can serve on both departments.

Klickitat County Rural 7 Fire & Rescue currently employs three full time employees: Chief, Assistant to the Chief, and Administrator. All activities of department are overseen by Rural 7 Board of Commissioners. All other personnel are volunteers.

A map of our service area is available for view as a pdf file.
