Public Records Requests
- At this time, Clackamas Fire’s business offices remain closed to the public and many of our administrative staff are working remotely. Please note that requests will be delayed up to 10 business days after receiving the request.
- You will be contacted if there is an additional delay in processing your request.
Incident and Inspection Records
The processing fee is $20.00 per report. If you were directly involved in the requested incident (i.e., patient, homeowner, building owner, etc.) there is no processing fee for your request. Please contact us if you have any questions about whether or not the processing fee is applicable to you.
There is a $10 fee for USB drives of investigative photos. Please note that these are typically only available for investigated fires. If you would like to know if there are photos available for your request, please contact us.
If paying with a check, please make checks payable to Clackamas Fire District #1.
Archival Record Requests
Archival record requests are billed based on time, materials of requested service, and overhead expenses (TMO). Cost calculations may include direct costs (transportation, personnel, archival retrieval/restoring fees for off-site storage, and any miscellaneous supplies and services) and indirect costs (administrative overhead and facility costs).
Types of Requests
Please select this option on the online request form if you are conducting research on a property that may yield multiple records. For example, if you are conducting an enviromental assessment on a property and need information regarding all hazmat spills, fires, and fire code inspections that have occurred at the address you would select this option. Indicate the date range and specific information pertaining to your request in the Additional Information field. If your request yields multiple results and you would like copies of each record, you will be charged the $20 record request fee for each additional record.
