The Boring Fire District #59 (BFD)/Clackamas Fire District #1 (CFD) volunteer member is a cornerstone of the rich history of the fire service. BFD/CFD rely on volunteers working side by side with career personnel in the daily performance of the fire district’s mission.
Today, more than ever, both districts Board of Directors are committed to supporting the volunteer program.
The joint BFD/CFD volunteer is comprised of 146 fire suppression/support volunteers and an additional 24 Explorers that make up one of the largest volunteer forces in the Western United States. The joint volunteer program is unique and is the first of its type in the State of Oregon. It is ground breaking and trend setting as the joint volunteer force serves both fire districts.
We currently have volunteers in five specialized service categories consisting of Chaplains, Explorers, Rehab/Command Bus Operators, Water Tender Operators and Firefighter Volunteers.
Support Volunteers play a critical role in providing service to the community. They provide the necessary support to meet the district's mission by engaging in a variety of functions and roles including rehabilitation response and support, water tender response, command bus response and Chaplain duties.
Suppression Volunteers are trained and equipped to respond to emergency scenes and perform firefighting and other emergency response activities. They regularly participate in fighting fires, providing emergency medical care and in fire prevention activities. Whether you desire a career in the fire service or wish to serve your local community, this practical experience is priceless in developing the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful in the fire service.
