The East Olympia Fire District #6 Operations Division is directed by the Assistant Chief/Operations who manages the emergency response system of the department which protects the life and property of the citizens of East Olympia. This division performs the duties of emergency response readiness, pre-fire planning, public education, and fire prevention including fire safety inspections.

The Operations Division is comprised of a combination of 45 uniformed career and volunteer firefighter/EMTs and 5 fire stations. Daily Operations consist of structural firefighting, wildland firefighting, emergency medical response including motor vehicle accidents, and low angle rescue. The District responds to approximately 950 emergency incidents per year.

Additionally, the Operations Chief is responsible for overseeing fleet maintenance which is performed by a highly skilled on-duty mechanic. The mechanic maintains a fleet of 6 fire engines, 5 water tenders, 2 aid units, an Air Unit, and 6 support vehicles. Facility and ground maintenance are also performed by this division.

Mutual aid and automatic aid response agreements exist with fire departments throughout Thurston County.
