Feasibility Study

Boring Fire District #59 / Clackamas Fire District #1

Feasibility Study

In January 2014, Emergency Services Consulting International (ESCI) presented to Boring Fire District #59 (Boring Fire) and Clackamas Fire District #1 (Clackamas Fire) an Opportunities for Collaborative Efforts Feasibility Study. The study was initiated by both Fire Districts in July 2013 as a result of working collaboratively for many years through an Intergovernmental Agreement for shared services.

The purpose of the study was to:

  1. Assess the current fiscal, service level, and infrastructure conditions of each agency; recommend improvements to their existing processes independently where appropriate; and forecast each agency’s fiscal future for the next five years.
  2. Identify partnership opportunities available to the agencies to increase efficiency or eliminate duplication, up to and including integration.
  3. Analyze the most feasible options, recommending those with the greatest opportunity for success financially and operationally.

Ultimately, this study led to a contract for service from Clackamas Fire to Boring Fire in July 2014 and a legal integration in the form of an annexation, which was approved by the voters of both Fire Districts in November 2016.
