Structure Fire Training
Dobbins/Oregon House Volunteer Fire Department is comprised of a
Chief, two Assistant Chiefs, three Captains and three Lieutenants, with the maximum
number of personnel set at 25. Almost all of the current firefighters
are Emergency Medical Technicials (EMTs) who carry well equipped
medical bags in their private vehicles for quick response as
needed. The average age of the firefighters is 30+ and the average
years firefighting/EMT experience is 10.|
Volunteer firefighter training is held each Wednesday evening at 6:30 PM and on occasional Saturdays for special training (eg. vehicle extrication, structure fires, hazardous materials incident response, and joint exercises with neighboring districts).
Our new fire station was completed in 2008 and houses three fire engines, one water tender and the rescue (squad) vehicle (see links at left to view apparatus). Other engines are located at substations in Dobbins (1 additional water tender and 1 engine) and Collins Lake (1 engine and chief's rescue vehicle).
