The following measures have been put in place in response to COVID-19 to protect West Pierce Fire & Rescue personnel from unnecessary exposures.

Public access
West Pierce Fire & Rescue will continue to operate and respond to 9-1-1 calls as business as usual and the lobby at Station 31 in University Place has reopened to the public.

Residential smoke alarm installations, life jacket and helmet fittings, and other various community services will be conducted by appointment only.

Permitting services
Permitting services will now only be available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at Station 20, located at 10928 Pacific Highway SW in Lakewood. While that lobby is closed, contractors requiring a permit shall call (253) 983-4583 and schedule a time for drop off and payments with the Prevention Division.

These changes will stay in effect indefinitely and will be evaluated at a later date as to when these services will resume to normal operations.
