About Us

 

 

 

The City of Bend Fire Department was formed in 1905. The Firefighters became members of the IAFF on September 11, 1947. Today we represent 65 members consisting of 18 Captains, 10 Engineers, 33 Firefighters and 4 Fire Inspectors. 54 members are Paramedics and 11 are EMT's. We operate 4 Engine Companies, 2 Transporting Medics and a Squad out of 5 stations. Minimum staffing is 3 for Engines and 2 on the Medics and Squad. The Truck and Rescue are cross-manned at separate stations. We operate a Technical Rescue Team of 12 members. Our Fire District is 164 sq miles and our Ambulance Response Area is 1,450 sq miles.

 

The City of Bend lies in the heart of Central Oregon. Bend and Portland, Oregon are the only 2 cities in the United States to have an extinct volcano within its city limits! We are a fast growing city with a population of approx 82,250 in the city and 135,000 in the district. Bend has a major attraction as a retirement destination. Central Oregon is also a highly desired vacation region with many resorts in and around Bend. Mt Bachelor Ski Resort and the Cascade Lakes are located 20 miles west of town. With world renowned recreation all year long (including over 300 miles of mountain bike trails), the need for specialized rescue is high.
