TVF&R Facilities

Our district has 27 fire stations, a Command and Business Operations Center, a training facility, and a South Operating Center as well as many community rooms that are available for reservation.

Due to the continued risk of COVID-19, we have made the decision to keep all community rooms closed indefinitely pending the development and availability of a vaccine.

We understand this closure will likely disrupt community activities that previously relied on the availability of these rooms, however, the health and safety of not only our staff but community at large is of upmost importance. Your understanding and patience during these unprecedented times is greatly appreciated. Please continue to do what you can to keep not only yourself, but the community around you safe.

Updates will be communicated through this webpage and email when applicable. Any questions can be directed to our headquarters at 503-649-8577.

Fire Station 53

Station 53 is located in the Progress area near the Washington Square Mall. In addition to responding to the District’s largest commercial development, this station serves well-established neighborhoods in eastern Washington County and is “first-in” on a significant volume of motor vehicle accidents on Highway 217. The station is also home to one-half of the District’s Hazardous Materials Team.

In 2010 the station was re-built using funds from TVF&R's voter-approved bond.  The Progress location is ideal from an operational standpoint. However, concerns about soil stability, building layout, small apparatus bays, dated mechanical and electrical systems, and a lack of compliance with building codes and current seismic requirements made the old facility unworkable and a liability in case of a major earthquake.

The new station was constructed to survive a major earthquake and is large enough to accommodate today’s modern fire apparatus.
