The Fire District took shape between 1972 and 2004 as a number of small fire departments consolidated to increase efficiency, lower the cost of service, and eliminate duplication. Today, we serve over 450,000 citizens in one of the fastest growing regions in Oregon. As we celebrate 25 years as a nationally accredited organization, we look forward to partnering with our citizens to create safer communities.
