Station 3 is located at Pine Creek in the Mount St. Helens Monument area. The Pine Creek Station is staffed during the busy summer months and has provided Advanced Life Support ambulance transport since 1976. The Volcano Rescue Team provides technical rescue backup to the St. Helens crews.
In 1995 PacifiCorp donated a house from their Yale Village to North Country EMS to use as a base for an EMS station near Cresap Bay Campground. The house was moved to its current location in 1996 to a piece of property at the junction of State Route 503 across from Frasier Road.
During 1996 and 1997, with the help of volunteers from Fire District # 7 and North Country EMS, a three bay ambulance and fire garage was constructed. The residence has been remodeled for use as quarters for EMS personnel. North Country EMS staffs the station during the summer months on a part time basis only.
In a cooperative effort with the Clark County Sheriff’s Office a sheriff’s patrol boat is also located at this station. This is not only a convenience for the Sheriff’s Department but provides emergency personnel rapid access to the boat in the event of a rescue, fire or EMS need.
North Country EMS opened a second station in Fargher Lake in May 2003. This station is also staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and reduces ambulance response times to the areas in the central and west end of the
