Oregon Office of State Fire Marshal enlists Bigfoot
to help prevent wildfires

The Oregon Office of State Fire Marshal announced Wednesday that a Pacific Northwest legend,

best known as Bigfoot, is joining fire prevention activities statewide, particularly in the wildland urban interface

and communities at greatest risk of wildfires and property loss.

Starting in June, the OSFM will be promoting wildfire safety education with its partners, using images of Bigfoot

and the hashtag #BelieveInFireSafety. "Wildfires can easily be ignited by backyard burning,

an unattended campfire, a hot car on tall, dry grass, or from dragging tow chains -- and they spread fast,"

said State Fire Marshal Jim Walker. "We hope our Bigfoot campaign will draw attention and create a bigger

‘footprint' of wildfire prevention efforts around the state," Walker added.

"We want people to believe in fire safety, whether you are camping, visiting Oregon or recreating."

Countywide Academy’s Volunteer Firefighters Graduate 

The Central Oregon Coast Training Officer’s Association (COCTOA) Fire Academy concluded nearly six months of training with a graduation ceremony held at North Lincoln Fire and Rescue’s St. Clair Station & Training Facility on February 28th.  More than a hundred friends and family members attended the event to celebrate the achievements of their loved ones.  In a long-standing fire service tradition, as each recruit moved forward to receive their certificate, his/her badge was pinned on by one of the proud onlookers. 


Division Chief Jamie Mason presented Recruit Firefighter Peter Pimentel of Toledo Fire Department with the Top Recruit Award.  This award is voted on by his peers in the Academy.


The recruits received Oregon State certifications for Firefighter I, Hazardous Materials Operations, and Wildland Firefighting.  In addition, students had the opportunity to gain real time experience responding with instructors on a student engine based out of the St. Clair Station.  This training program brought the fire departments and fire districts under one format, promoting consistent response to emergencies in Lincoln County. 


The time these recruits spent together did more than create trained firefighters, it built friendships and relationships between agencies county-wide. The fourteen recruits represented five agencies:  Depoe Bay Fire, Central Coast Fire, Newport Fire, North Lincoln Fire, and Toledo Fire.  They will be joining the ranks of their respective districts or departments on March 1, 2019.


If you are interested in becoming a volunteer firefighter, please contact Division Chief Mason (NLFR) at 541-996-2233 or your local fire agency.

The next county-wide COCTOA Fire Academy is planned for the fall of 2019.

Fire Chief Doug Kerr Retires

Firefighters, friends, and family gathered at North Lincoln Fire & Rescue’s St. Clair Station on February 28th to bid Fire Chief Doug Kerr farewell and wish him well on his retirement after 35 years of volunteer and career service to the District. 


Lincoln City Police Chief Jerry Palmer presented Kerr with a LCPD Chief award and commented on how over the years, the Police Department and the Fire District have worked together with great cooperation and respect for each other’s roles on emergency scenes.


Firefighter Bob Duby shared some comments about Kerr saying; “You know one thing about Doug (Kerr), after every call he’d go around and thank all the crew for coming out and helping”.


Chief Kerr spoke a few words of gratitude to all the volunteers and staff and concluded with his trademark “Thanks for all you do”!

Long-time friend and North Lincoln Fire Board Member Alan Lee presented Chief Kerr with a shadow box containing the badges and insignias he has worn over the past 35 years.

Red Cross Teams Up With North Lincoln Fire & Rescue

In the early morning on Saturday, October 20th, a dozen members from the American Red Cross drove to the Otis Fire Station from Salem and Portland to team up with local Red Cross organizer Mitchell Hamrick, and several North Lincoln Fire and Rescue Support Team members for smoke alarm installation training.  More than 60 smoke alarms were installed in the Otis and Lincoln City. 


The national American Red Cross program “Sound the Alarm” the Home Fire Campaign helps save lives by installing free smoke alarms in homes.  In addition to the smoke alarm installation, information is provided regarding creating a fire escape plan for the family.  A hazard checklist is also provided and reviewed with the resident.


Every day, seven people die in home fires, most in homes that lack working smoke alarms.  Sadly, children and the elderly disproportionately lose their lives. The American Red Cross wants to improve the odds and save lives.  That’s why they launched their Home Fire Campaign in 2014.


A critical part of the “Sound the Alarm” campaign is a series of home fire safety and smoke alarm installation events across the country. Red Cross volunteers, along with fire departments and other partners, canvass at-risk neighborhoods, installing free smoke alarms, replacing batteries in existing alarms, and providing fire prevention and safety education.  


In just three years, Red Cross has accomplished so much, including the installation of more than 1 million smoke alarms and prepared more than 1 million people against home fires through their home visits.


Thanks to all who came to learn and install the smoke alarms.  We plan on doing this event again in the late spring of 2019!


In addition to smoke alarms, a couple of Support Team members equipped 16 homes with house number signs in Otis as part of the “If we can’t find you, we can’t help you” campaign.


If you want to be part of the campaign, give a call!  Together we CAN save lives.
