Chimney Brush Loan Program

A leading cause of Oregon structure fires are chimney fires. 

Hoodland Fire District residents can borrow chimney brushes from the Hoodland Fire District for FREE!

Please come by the Welches Main Station during business hours.  We are located at 69634 E. Hwy 26, Welches, OR.   There is no charge to borrow the brushes and 6' extention rods, we just ask that you bring the brush back as soon as you're safely finished, so that we can loan it out again.

Before you come in:

  • Measure the size of the inside of your chimney pipe
  • Bring valid photo I.D. to the fire department.
