ABOUT US

Newman Lake Fire & Rescue began in 1949 when citizens of the community had to watch the Woehrle home burn due to the lack of water to extinguish the flames. A meeting was organized after that and a fund was established to begin a fire department, the Tri-Community Grange became a sponsor. By late 1951, $2,000 had been raised to purchase a fire truck. The first fire apparatus was a 1941 Ford Pumper with a 500 gallon tank purchased from Spokane Valley Fire District #1.  

Volunteer labor (over 200 man hours) built the first fire station at Cherokee Landing. The station contained a bell, siren and small wood stove.

BOARD OF FIRE

COMMISSIONERS MEETINGS

WELCOME INTERIM COMMISSIONER BEN KAISER!

Greetings!  I’m Ben Kaiser, and I’m proud to serve the Newman Lake community as the newest interim fire commissioner.  I moved to this community a year ago with my family and fell in love with the people, sense of community and the beauty of the area.  My family moved here from Cocolalla, Idaho but we spent our fledgling years in North Pole, Alaska where we gained our sense of adventure and love of the outdoors. My wife and I were teachers for 10 years prior to switching gears and becoming involved in healthcare.  My wife is a labor and delivery nurse at Deaconess and I am a Firefighter/EMT for the city of Coeur d’Alene, currently going to paramedic school.  I have two wonderful children: a 7 year old girl who goes to school at East Farms Elementary and a 4 year old boy who does 4 year old boy things.  Most days you’ll find me on the tractor puttering around doing outdoor chores with my kiddos going like gangbusters on their bikes.  My family is very excited to be a part of the Newman Lake Community and experience all that this area has to offer.
