The Rural 7 Fire Department serves an area of some 700 square miles througout Klickitat County, and it maintains 32 fire apparatuses with a couple of new pieces in Goldendale. The latest is a 2005 KW T-800 LowBoy truck, pictured above with a close-up at right of its operations console, which was purchased just last year. At top are all the trucks at Rural 7 stationed in Goldendale, from left to right across both top pictures: the new truck just mentioned; a 2009 International 4X4 structure engine; a 201 T-800 pumper tender (also purchased last year); a 2006 F350 Command truck; a 2009 International 4X4 Rescue 7 truck; a 2011 F450 4X4 brush truck; and a 2012 F350 4X4 command truck. Rural 7 also built a new facility in Ponderosa Park, Station 11, in 2010, with assistance from Klickitat County. The fire department responds to some 120 calls each year and conducts about 300 rescue operations each year.
