Mission Statement

The Washington Contract Firefighters Association will strive to promote and maintain the highest professional, ethical and training standards necessary to supply the needs of the wildland firefighting community. We will promote an open line of communication and cooperation among our served agencies. We will work to increase the use of private resources when that use will benefit the public.

The WCFA was formed in 1998 to provide quality, low-cost wildland firefighting training to private firefighting companies. NWCG approved training is available to both members and non-members. Our membership is made up of private wildland firefighting contractors from across Washington state.

WCFA members have access to the following benefits:

  • Low-cost, quality wildland firefighting training meeting the requirements of NWCG
  • Database for training records, ID cards and employee management
  • Instructor certification for qualified instructors
  • A combined voice to the government agencies with whom we cooperate
  • Sharing of ideas by fellow contractors
  • Informational seminars on business management, government rules and regulations
  • Newsletters and e-mail updates on issues affecting the wildland firefighting industry

We hope you enjoy our site! We invite all wildland firefighting contractors to consider joining our association!
