Ways to Help the Firefighters
IN THE BEGINNING:
The Town of Winthrop established its first fire department prior to 1945. In 2006, the Town elected to disband its fire department and contract with Okanogan County Fire District 6. The Winthrop FireFighters Association was formed to carry on the heritage and traditions of the Winthrop Station as an integral part of Okanogan County Fire District and the communities it serves.
