This weekend, Duvall Fire will place into service our newest response vehicle, a 4 wheel drive all terrain vehicle that we call “ATV-66.”
ATV-66, and the accompanying trailer, was provided at no cost to Duvall Fire by a First Responder Grant through the Department of Homeland Security.
ATV-66 will be used to carry firefighter/EMTs and first aid equipment in areas that are not accessible to full-size vehicles. In the past, Duvall Fire has responded to many medical emergencies in hard-to-reach places, including state-owned hunting lands and popular hiking and biking areas, like the Cherry Falls trail and Snoqualmie Valley Trail. ATV-66 may also be used for large events in McCormick Park that are difficult to access with full-size aid cars. When aid crews reach the patient, they can transport them on a stretcher to the nearest road using ATV-66. Having ATV-66 will reduce our response time in these areas, thus improving patient care.
ATV was built by Club Car and has the following features:
- Three cylinder Kubota diesel engine.
- Full time All Wheel Drive.
- Off road tires
- Seats for three people
- Stretcher for one patient.
- Rollover protection
- Tool box/storage.
- Canvas and vinyl side screens and windows.
- Siren and emergency strobe lights.
Duvall Fire has been training our emergency responders for several weeks in the capabilities and safe use of ATV-66.

One free call to 811 two-business days prior to digging starts the process of having underground utility lines marked. This simple call reduces the chance of diggers unintentionally striking a utility line (gas, electric, communications, water or sewer) and causing inconvenient outages, harm to themselves or someone else, and/or repair costs.
As the weather in Western Washington starts to turn, keep in mind there are several precautions you should take while driving.
On September 16, Duvall Fire lost one of its own as a result of an off-duty medical emergency. Mike McMurray began his volunteer career 12 years ago as an emergency medical service (EMS) responder. He was inspired by a strong desire to make a difference in the community and his role within the department rapidly expanded to include contributions and expertise as: firefighter, boat operator/instructor, EMS instructor, emergency driving instructor, CPR instructor, and public educator. In each of these endeavors, he applied himself fully to master the task; ensuring only the highest quality of service. With a heavy heart, we have shrouded our badges and dropped our flags to half-staff in his honor. Our sincerest thanks to the Redmond and Woodinville fire departments, Redmond Medics, Duvall Police, Evergreen Hospital staff, and our community neighbors and friends for their support.
A memorial service will be held at Riverview School District headquarters (15510 1st Ave NE, Duvall) on Saturday September 29 at 10am.
In lieu of flowers, the family has requested that donations be made to the Duvall Firefighters Association or a charity of your choice.
