Many fire injuries occur when people attempt to fight a home fire.

When a fire breaks out, get out quickly and call 911.

 People often get confused about what to do during a fire.

Infants, young children, older adults, and people with disabilities may be at risk

because of their inability to escape quickly, or on their own.

Create a home fire escape plan:

Another Successful Food & Toy Drive

Dozens of NLFR volunteers, families, and friends volunteered on Saturday morning, December 21st, to deliver a bit of Christmas cheer and hope.  The boxes of food contained everything needed for a holiday dinner, and a bit more.  Wrapped presents for the children were delivered along with the food to numerous families in our community.


A huge thank you to all involved with the delivery and all the many hours devoted to the collection of food and toys.  Firefighter David Bickerdyke was the chairman for the food drive and put in a lot of hours with this project.  Firefighter Marc McPherson was in charge of the toy drive this year, as well as making sure Santa was at quite a few events around town (he personally knows Santa!)


Coming Soon...Recruit Academy 2014

Applications for Volunteer Firefighters will be accepted beginning in March for the Fall 2014 Recruit Academy.  The Recruit Academy will begin in September and will meet on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, with an occasional weekend class.  The classes will end in January 2015.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer firefighter for North Lincoln Fire & Rescue, please contact us at 541-996-2233.  This is a great way to serve your community.

Vehicle Fire & Search/Rescue Training

July 22, 2013 Monday Night Drill at Station 1600


Mass Casualty Drill Strengthens
Firefighters' Response

By the way, our "bus driver" who was deceased at the scene, has made a complete recovery!

No one wants a disaster to happen, but North Lincoln Fire & Rescue District #1 planned to have one on June 24, 2013.


Engines and crews were dispatched to a call: 

"school bus into a building"


When crews arrived on scene, they "sized-up" the scene and began the work of aiding the wounded and addressing the multiple hazards that were present.


Actor "victims" from Teen CERT and the community were made up with moulage make-up to resemble actual wounds.  The scenario was that the school bus driver suffered a heart attack while driving the bus with students inside.  One of the students attempted to steer the bus, but it crashed into "Jake's Auto Parts".  The crash caused downed power lines, a gas leak, a fire, etc.  There were many injured students.  There were also people in Jake's Auto Parts with injuries caused by the crash and the fire.


These drills, although difficult to coordinate, serve a very important function for our firefighters, giving them an intense training experience and greatly improving their skills.  Other scenario drills will take place in the near future.


We'd like to thank CERT, NW Natural Gas, Lincoln City Police & Dispatch, Pacific West Ambulance, Mid-Columbia School Bus, Reach Helicopter, and everyone else who participated in this drill.
