Columbia River fire & Rescue is a combination system. This means we have both volunteer and career personnel providing fire and rescue services for the Citizens of our Fire District. Columbia River Fire & Rescue provides services to over 27,000 citizens in 185 square miles.
Seven fire stations are strategically located throughout the combined District. An Administration Office, Joint Maintenance Facility and the Lee Broadbent Training Center are also located within the District.
