Who We Are
In 1977 the property owners of Crooked River Ranch formed the Crooked River Ranch Rural Fire Protection District (CRRRFPD). Prior to that there was no fire protection or emergency medical services available on the Ranch.
Originally the district was staffed entirely by volunteers. Today we are a modern, full service department providing fire, rescue, and emergency medical services for our community. We have a career staff of five and up to 25 volunteer staff. Our career staff includes the Fire Chief, three shift Captain/Paramedics, and a District Secretary who is also a Captain/Paramedic.
Our volunteer staff includes the Assistant Fire Chief, two Captains, two Lieutenants, the Fire Marshal, and 15 to 20 firefighters. Most of our volunteer firefighters are also either paramedics or emergency medical technicians.
We also host up to three firefighter/students at the department. The students live at our station, attend fire science and emergency medical classes at Central Oregon Community College, and respond to emergency calls on the Ranch as volunteers.
