Another major step in the trial merger effort between the Camas and Washougal fire departments was put into place last week.
On Dec. 6, two captains “swapped” departments. WFD Capt. Larry Saari is now working out of the downtown Camas fire station as the training officer, while CFD Capt. Greg Payne is now based from WFD Station 171.
“This is a significant event in the history of the Camas and Washougal fire departments, and likewise a major event in the trial merger between the two departments,” CFD Chief Nick Swinhart said in a written statement.
