Northwest Fire Rescue & Training has been built with a "Ground Up" approach by firefighters for the community. If your municipality has a policy of "Containment Only," make sure officers, managers, and landowners know Northwest Fire is here to assist and/ or assume command. Northwest is a "Fee for service" fire contractor. However, our experience as and with municipal fire services makes us more responsive to the needs of the public and creates seamless cooperation with local fire services.
