TO REPORT AN EMERGENCY: DIAL 9-1-1

Why Is Clackamas Fire Charging For These Responses?

The Fire District enacted a local ordinance to serve as a financial incentive so that business and residential owners properly maintain their alarm systems. Reducing false alarms also reduces community risk. Once a crew is dispatched to a fire alarm, they are generally unavailable for other life threatening or higher priority responses; every responses puts our personnel and the public at risk.
