Hoodland Fire District #74 is 35 miles east of Portland, Oregon along historic Highway 26, in East Clackamas County. The Fire District was established as a special district by Clackamas County Commissioners on September 19, 1966. Hoodland Fire District provides quality fire, rescue and advanced life support emergency medical services in a 45 square mile district between Sandy and Mt. Hood.
The Fire District is overseen by a Board of Directors that consists of five publicly elected residents or property owners. Our Board Members serve four-year, staggered terms. The Board establishes fire district policy through the passage of resolutions and ordinances. The Board also adopts the fire district budget and approves appropriations and levies taxes.
The Fire District is staffed by a combination of 11 career and 30 volunteer personnel. We proudly protect the rural communities of Marmot, Cherryville, Brightwood, Wemme, Welches, Zig Zag, Rhododendron and Government Camp from our 3 fire stations. We respond to approximately 1,000 emergency calls for assistance from our 6,000 full time and up to 15,000 seasonal residents every year.
HFD is the first responder for structural/wildland/vehicle fires, vehicle accidents, hazardous materials and medical emergencies in its service area. The Fire District does not transport patients to the hospital. Ground ambulance services are provided by American Medical Response. Air Ambulance Services are provided by Life Flight Network.
