About Our Local

International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) Local 3520 was founded on June 17, 1993 by the Firefighters employed by Pierce County Fire District 22, Lake Tapps Professional Firefighters. On June 1, 1999 the Firefighters of Bonney Lake Fire Department, consolidated with Lake Tapps Fire Department, and created East Pierce Fire & Rescue. East Pierce Professional Firefighters Union, IAFF Local 3520 was then formed. On January 1, 2007 the Firefighters of IAFF Local 2877, Sumner Fire Department consolidated into East Pierce Fire & Rescue. And on April 1, 2010 the Firefighters of the Edgewood Fire Department (Pierce County Fire District 8), represented by the Puyallup Firefighters IAFF Local 726 merged into East Pierce Fire & Rescue creating what is now the present day organization. Our members are involved in the community through fundraisers, charity events, civic organizations, church organizations, and by living in the areas we serve. We are all proud to serve you.

We provide service to approximately 88,000 residents of East Pierce County from 11 stations, of which 6 are staffed 24/7/365 with professional firefighters. We serve an area of 152 square miles, starting at I-5 in Milton and covering all the places in between all the way to the border of Mt. Rainier National Park. The services provided by our members employed by East Pierce Fire & Rescue include fire suppression, EMS treatment and transport, water rescue, technical rescue services, hazardous materials response, and wildland and urban interface fire suppression. We also provide fire investigations, public education outreach, life jacket and bike helmet fitting and sales, and are active via numerous community related events, fundraisers, and outreach throughout the year.
