Newberg Fire & Emergency Medical Service Partnership
The city of Newberg and Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue entered into a two-year agreement starting July 1, 2016, strengthening emergency response in Newberg and the surrounding rural area. View map.

Newberg asked TVF&R to serve the city and honor its arrangement with Newberg Rural Fire Protection District due to budget constraints that limited the city's ability to provide adequate staffing, maintain equipment, and comply with national standards given increased service demands.

During the contractFirefighter-Paramedics, elected leaders of TVF&R, the city of Newberg and Newberg Rural evaluated the feasibility and cost-benefit of annexation. All agreed that it was a mutually beneficial decision and offered the most stable solution for long-term fire protection and emergency medical services to the city and rural community.
Elected leaders referred the issue to Newberg and Newberg Rural voters who made the decision at the ballot box in November 2017 to annex into TVF&R's service area.

What's next?

In March, voters residing in TVF&R's service area resoundingly approved two measures allowing TVF&R to permanently annex the city of Newberg and the surrounding territory currently in the Newberg Rural Fire Protection District. All the required public hearings have been held, and most of the business process has been completed, so the annexations will take effect as planned on July 1, 2018.
