We serve the 1,000 citizens of Falls City and the 1.2 square mile town’s visitors.
We have mutual aid agreements with Polk Fire District #1, Southwest Polk Rural Fire Protection District, Dallas Fire & EMS. It is not an uncommon request for us to provide standby coverage at a neighboring station or on scene support. Additionally, we have an agreement with the Oregon Department of Forestry, which oversees 1,094 square miles in Polk County, including timberland above and around our town and a Bureau of Land Management site which are included in our agreement. Last year, we responded to a total of 241 calls. 160 of those were within our own town’s boundaries while an additional 81 calls took us beyond our borders and into the districts we serve in the surrounding area.
