TO REPORT AN EMERGENCY: DIAL 9-1-1

Clackamas Fire Community Forum: Staffing, Wildfires, and Alternative Response

Community Forums on Proposed Enhanced Levy

Clackamas Fire is considering a levy to fund firefighter staffing and equipment. In January 2023, the Clackamas Fire Board of Directors is expected to consider a measure for voter referral on the May 2023 ballot. The public has an opportunity to provide feedback to Clackamas Fire on the proposed levy in November 2022 and January 2023.

Clackamas Fire District #1 is one of the largest and busiest emergency response agencies in the Portland Metro Area, serving more than 220,000 residents across 235 square miles. Clackamas Fire responds to approximately 30,000 calls each year. However, unlike other large fire agencies – including TVF&R and Marion County – Clackamas Fire does not have an enhanced levy to fund firefighter positions and equipment needs. This funding gap has led to persistent staffing challenges, including an inability to maintain coverage at several rural fire stations.

Community Forums this fall

Clackamas Fire will host three community forums to share information about the proposed levy and impacts on staffing, wildfires, and alternative response. The forums will include a short presentation and a panel discussion where the public will have the opportunity to ask questions about the proposed levy to Clackamas Fire leadership. Please register to join us in person or via Zoom.
