About Newman Lake Fire & Rescue

Newman Lake Fire & Rescue is also known as Spokane County Fire District #13. We are staffed by 20 volunteer firefighters who must meet the same state and federal regulations as paid departments. We are governed by a board of elected commissioners and employ a Chief and Deputy Chief. Our twenty-three square mile district contains two stations; Station 1 on the corner of Starr Rd and Moffat Rd and Station 2 at the intersection of Muzzy Road, West Newman Lake Drive and Thompson Creek Roads.

NLFR Response to COVID-19 Outbreak 
May 2020

Your fire district continues to respond to all medical and fire calls. Our priority is to continue to respond to all calls for our service. We ask that you help us as Washington State phases in the new protocols for resuming work by maintaining social distancing, disinfecting often used areas numerous times during the day, and masking up if sick.

Moving forward, NLFR will be taking the same precautions as we have over the last month to keep our firefighters healthy.
