Two Miles of the Snoqualmie River in Fall City closed...
A two mile stretch of the Snoqualmie River will be closed due to the construction activities of the Upper Carlson Floodplain Restoration project. The project will require closing two miles of the river to boating and floating beginning at the State Route 202 Bridge in Fall City downstream to a point roughly one mile upstream of the boat launch at Neal Road. The closure is expected to last four months.

River Safety for Swimmers and Rafters - Every Year the Fire Department responds to water rescues in our local rivers some which result in loss of life by drowning. We urge you to be prepared and use extreme caution when recreating in and near the rivers.
¨Wear a life jacket!  It may not seem cool to wear a life jacket while rafting but it could save your life!

¨Know the water! The local rivers are cold enough to cause hypothermia even on the hottest summer day. The river may appear safe but many unforeseen dangers are there: logs, debris, undertows, and changing currents, all can be very dangerous!

¨Children need to be watched at all times. It can take only 20 to 60 seconds for a child to submerge without warning. ►more water safety tips

King County Fire District 27 is located in Fall City, Washington nestled in the Cascade foothills twenty four miles east of Seattle. The Fire District serves
a population of approximately 6,000 people in and surrounding the unincorporated rural town of Fall City. The Fire District service area is 23 square miles. The area offers many recreational activities from river rafting, hiking, horseback riding, golfing and much more. Two river systems, the Snoqualmie and the Raging rivers cross through the District. Several lakes dot the landscape and the Snoqualmie Falls is a popular attraction that borders the Fire District. Fall City is comprised mostly of residential properties, agricultural farming and service business operations.
Is Your Home Protected from Wildfire Danger?
The threat of wildfire is real and although Western Washington forests are green and the landscape is beautiful, it can also be deadly. The potential for extreme fire danger exists when homes are built in and around woodland areas creating what is termed the “wildland-urban interface.
