About TVF&R
Services
Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue provides fire protection and emergency medical services to approximately 454,000 citizens in one of the fastest growing regions in Oregon. Our 210 square mile service area includes the cities of Beaverton, Durham, King City, Rivergrove, Sherwood, Tigard, Tualatin, West Linn, and Wilsonville, and unincorporated portions of Clackamas, Multnomah, and Washington County.

Facilities
Our district has 21 fire stations, a command and business operations center, a training facility, and three integrated operating centers (North, Central, and South).

Citizens served by TVF&R benefit from the services of a large metropolitan fire department, while paying one of the lowest fire-protection tax rates in the region. TVF&R receives almost its entire funding from property taxes. This funding comes through a permanent tax rate and temporary funding sources such as a local option levy and general obligation bond.

Board of Directors

TVF&R is governed by an elected five-member Board of Directors and managed by professional staff. One of the district's hallmarks is a commitment to think and operate like a private business. Examples include employing innovative emergency scene tactics, offering services to neighboring agencies to generate revenue and off-set business costs, and implementing non-traditional staffing based on incident data.

Accreditation
In August 2000, TVF&R was accredited by the Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI). This requires internal and external evaluation to ensure we are meeting internationally recognized performance standards. To retain accreditation status, an agency must be re-evaluated every five years.

Awards
TVF&R is an internationally recognized fire department.  In 1999 and again in 2006, TVF&R received the prestigious International Association of Fire Chiefs' Fire Service Award for Excellence. This award recognizes a fire department's innovations and achievements in managing resources to reduce the loss of life and property from fire and other emergencies. In 1999 it was awarded for our Community Assistance Program and in 2006 for our Apartment Program.
