On Monday, June 15, 2020, the Clackamas County Fire District #1 Board of Directors passed Resolution #20-04 to initiate a proposed merger with Estacada Rural Fire District No. 69. On Thursday, June 18, 2020, the Estacada Rural Fire District No. 69 Board of Directors passed Resolution #20-03 to initiate a proposed merger with Clackamas County Fire District #1. The proposed merger will be put in front of voters in both fire districts on the November 3, 2020 ballot.

Background:

On Jan. 1, 2020, Clackamas County Fire District #1 began providing fire suppression and emergency medical services to the citizens of Estacada Rural Fire District No. 69 through an 18-month contract for services in the form of an Intergovernmental Agreement.  Approved by both fire district board of directors, the contract for services was a result of over two years of collaboration between the two agencies in an effort to find efficiencies in the services that are provided to the community.  Components of this contract have been part of an ongoing Intergovernmental Agreement between the two agencies that began in 2015.

Under this contract, Clackamas County Fire District #1 provides fire protection and emergency medical services to Estacada Rural Fire District No. 69 to include adding additional firefighting resources in the form of career and volunteer firefighting personnel. The contract, effective Jan. 1, 2020, provides an engine company staffed with three firefighters per shift with a minimum of one being a paramedic to provide advanced life support (ALS) 24-hours a day, seven days a week.  The crews continue to respond from the Estacada Community Fire Station (aka Estacada Fire Station 330) with the George Road Community Fire Station (aka Estacada Fire Station 333) being supplemented by volunteer firefighters. Additionally, the contract provides enhanced fire protection services to the communities of Barton, Boring, Clarkes, Eagle Creek, Highland, and Logan communities. The contract is being carried out at no additional cost to tax payers from either fire district and doesn’t affect the services currently provided to residents of Clackamas County Fire District #1.
