Fire Suppression


The Pilot Rock Fire District provides fire suppression to the City of Pilot Rock and the surrounding 348 square miles. Suppression activities include fighting structure fires ranging from houses, barns, and commercial occupancies. The majority of suppression is for natural cover fires, i.e., grass or brush fires. These types of fires can be very small to thousands of acres. Vehicle and rubbish fires are also common fires the District will respond apparatus to. The volunteers of the District work very hard to provide the best service they can and are always striving to become better trained and educated. Sometimes there is nothing the Fire District can do to save a building that catches fire but as long as no lives are lost buildings can be rebuilt. The support the Fire District gets from it's citizens is much appreciated and never forgotten. Thank you to all who help in our time of need. Mutual-aid fires effect most of the Fire Departments in Eastern Oregon.
