*Note – Starting on September 1, 2018, Sutherlin Fire Department started staffing a three-person Engine Company out of Station 1, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Prior to this the Station was staffed Monday – Friday, 7am – 5pm. Additionally, SFD started responding to Medical Aid calls as Basic Life Support First Responders on September 1, 2018.  This allows us to provide patient care until an Advanced Life Support Ambulance arrives on scene.

 

**Note – Starting April 1, 2019 the Calapooia Fire District contracted with Sutherlin Fire Department for fire services. With the contract, Sutherlin Fire Crews staff Station 2 with off duty Students/Volunteers, responding to calls within the Callapooia Fire District as well as throughout the City of Sutherlin.  This is a huge asset for city residents on the west side of Interstate 5.
