Emergency Rescue Services


S.E. Thurston Fire Authority is equipped to provide emergency rescue services for a wide range of emergency situations, including auto accidents, falls, industrial accidents, structure collapse, water mishaps, and more. Auto accidents by far are the most common rescue scenario for SETFA firefighters. When a complex car accident occurs, SETFA is able to respond with state-of-the-art equipment and resources. Due to safety regulations,“still water” AND “swift water” rescues are typically handled by the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office.

We provide response services for the following types of emergencies:

  • t_bone_fat-2Fire Suppression
  • Basic/Advanced Life Support
  • Rescue (Trench Collapse, Structural Collapse, Vehicle/Machinery Disentanglement)
  • Hazardous Materials
  • Weather-Related Events
  • Wildland/Urban Interface Fires
