The district is governed by a three member Board of Fire Commissioners each of whom serves a six year term. By statute, the Board is responsible for the management of District affairs. To that end, the Board establishes policy and provides direction to the Fire Chief who is responsible for the day-to-day operations and fiscal management of the District.
The majority of the Board of Fire Commissioners has considerable longevity. Commissioner Paul Messener has served for 28 years and Commissioner Cheryl Engle has served for 23 years. Most recently, Coupeville resident Steve Hutchinson was appointed to fill a vacancy created by Commissioner Tom Smith's resignation. Commissioner Hutchinson will serve in this position until the election for the position takes place in October 2015.
