Mission Statement North Kitsap Fire & Rescue is proud to serve in the protection of lives and property. Insurance Rating: Businesses and residences within 1000′ of a fire hydrant enjoy a rating of 4 NKF&R Fact Sheet 2023 *Includes $1.6 million additional tax revenue from a four-year (2019-2022) special maintenance and operations levy approved by voters in the fall of 2018. About 2/3 of the M&O revenue was spent on long-deferred capital projects such as station maintenance/renovation, firefighter safety gear and apparatus/vehicle replacement. Boundaries and Station Locations NKF&R’s north and east boundaries are defined by the shores of Puget Sound, with the western line running from Sandy Hook (near the Agate Pass Bridge) to just south of Port Gamble (and excluding the Port Gamble S’Klallam Indian Reservation). The fire district includes several small communities such as Hansville, Kingston, Indianola and Suquamish. There are no incorporated cities in the district. NKF&R maintains four stations fully-staffed with firefighters 24 hours/day, 365 days/year. This configuration is the result of the district’s efforts to relocate its facilities and provide higher levels of service with 24-hour staffing. The district is proud to have an average response time to priority calls of about 7 minutes.
