Ray Winsor, Fire Chief


The Colville Fire Department is comprised of volunteers from the community who are willing to voluntarily train and perform the duties of this emergency service department.

The Fire Department responds to emergency calls to protect life and property from fires.  Personnel from this department are involved in extensive training.  The Fire Chief assists the Building Inspector in providing fire and life safety inspections for local businesses and assists the Water Department in the selection of fire hydrant locations.

The Fire Chief reviews building and construction plans for Fire Department concerns on request of the Building Official, investigates fires, and consults with the Street Department on questions concerning fire access during the planning for City streets.







As of January 1, 2007, land-clearing and residential outdoor burning will no longer be legal in any area designated as an Urban Growth Area (UGA) under the Growth Management Act.  The City of Colville, and several other cities in Stevens County, were designated Urban Growth Areas by Stevens County when the county decided to plan under the Growth Management Act several years ago.  The Department of Ecology is committed to working with cities, counties, and citizens groups to promote viable alternatives to burning in all communities, especially those where the ban on open burning takes effect in 2007.  The applicable law and rule involved are RCW 70.94.6514 and WAC 173-425-040.






Fireworks may be discharged only on July 4th between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m. and December 31st from 6:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. on January 1st of the subsequent year.


The City of Colville requires that anyone selling fireworks within the City limits must obtain a permit.
