The District


Clackamas County, Oregon

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 in September of 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,


Hoodland Fire District #74 (outlined in red) is the easternmost fire district in Clackamas County.  We are surrounded by the Mount Hood National Forest on three sides.


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 9 combination of career and 30 volunteer personnel, lead by Fire Chief John Ingrao.  We proudly protect the rural communities of Marmot, Cherryville, Brightwood, Wemme, Welches, Zig Zag, Rhododendron and Government Camp from our 3 fire stations.  Last year, we responded to just under 1000 emergency calls for assistance from our 6000 full time and up to 15,000 seasonal residents.
