The Washington State Auditor’s financial and accountability audits of South Whatcom Fire Authority for the years 2020-2021 are now complete and published for the public’s review.  The links to the Auditor’s reports can be found under our Public Records web page.

We are happy to announce that SWFA had a clean audit with no recommendations or findings.  The SWFA Board of Commissioners and administrative staff take the fiduciary responsibility of maintaining taxpayers’ money very seriously, while providing an effective and safe emergency response service.

If you have any questions on the audit process or reports, please reach out to Fire Chief, Mitch Nolze, for more information at (360) 676-8080 or email at
