CHEHALIS – Fire District 6 plans to reduce particular services that it has provided to the City of Chehalis for years. Chief Ken Cardinale clarified Monday that District 6 will continue to offer critical emergency medical services, as they are able. He says, “Our daily staffing is one firefighter and one paramedic and we need to make sure that we stay in service for the taxpayer in district 6.” In the public safety business it’s called mutual aid. Chief Cardinale adds that “Since Chehalis doesn’t have an Advanced Life Support program, they can’t provide the same service back to us which is called a reciprocal agreement. The City of Chehalis does not have an ALS program, they only have a Basic Life Support program.” Chief Ken Cardinale clarified that their fraternity with the City of Chehalis and other fire agencies remains strong. The on duty District 6 firefighter and paramedic cover a 160 square mile area primarily west and east of the City of Chehalis, in addition to the mutual aid that they offer.
