Beginning on January 1, 2020, Clackamas Fire District #1 will begin providing fire suppression and emergency medical services to the citizens of Estacada Rural Fire District No. 69 through an 18-month contract for service in the form of an Intergovernmental Agreement. The contract for service was approved by the Estacada Fire and Clackamas Fire Board of Directors in October 2019. The approval of the contract for service is a result of over two years of collaboration between two agencies in an effort to find efficiencies in the services that are provided to the community.
Under this contract, Clackamas Fire District #1 will provide fire protection and emergency medical services to Estacada Rural Fire District No. 69 to include additional firefighting resources in the form of career and volunteer firefighting personnel. The contract, effective January 1, 2020, provides an engine company staffed with three firefighters per shift with a minimum of one being a paramedic to provide advanced life support (ALS) 24-hours a day, seven days a week. The crews will continue to respond from the Estacada Main Fire Station with the George Road Fire Station being supplemented by volunteer firefighters. Additionally, the contract will provide enhanced fire protection services to the communities of Barton, Boring, Clarkes, Eagle Creek, Highland and Logan communities. The contract will be carried out at no additional cost to tax payers from either fire district and will not affect the services currently provided to residents of Clackamas Fire District #1.”
