What: New Fire Station Community Outreach Meeting

When: October 2, 2018 at 5:30 PM

Where: Fire Station 31, 1050 W. Oak St., Lebanon, OR

The Lebanon Fire District is planning on replacing Fire Station 31 and we need your input. We invite you to come to a community meeting to learn about the District’s plan to improve capabilities to meet the community’s needs.

Fire Station 31 is the main fire station for the District and houses administrative and management staff as well as emergency response fire and EMS crews. The fire station was originally built in 1975 and has served the District well, but is due for replacement based on seismic, life safety, size, and workflow concerns. Construction is currently planned to begin in 2021. 

You are asked to give your input on the overall design of the new station at a Community Outreach meeting on October 2, 2018 at 5:30 PM. The current fire station will be open for tours, and a community discussion will be led by the District’s consulting architect who will help direct staff in the overall design of the new fire station. 

Please come to learn more about the District needs and provide your input for your fire station. Your input is important to us.

Lebanon Fire District rescues two people from a second story apartment fire - 09/16/18

Lebanon Fire District rescues two occupants from a second story apartment fire.

Around 2:19 am this morning, the Lebanon Fire District responded to the report of a small fire at 2051 S. 2nd St. Upon arrival, the first engine reported a two story apartment fire with occupants hanging out of multiple second story windows. That engine immediately initiated rescue operations. With the help of the Lebanon Police Department the engine crew was able to rescue two occupants from two different second story windows. Another occupant jumped from a second story window prior to the rescue operations. Two people were transported to the hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

The incident commander called for a second alarm and received mutual aid from the Albany Fire Department and the Sweet Home Fire and Ambulance District. It took firefighters approximately two and a half hours to control the blaze. No firefighters were injured during the operations.

The apartment building contained five units, four of which were occupied at the time of the fire.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Lebanon Fire Fighters battle a second alarm shop fire - 09/09/18

Around 7:25pm the Lebanon Fire District respond to the report of a structure fire at 180 S. 12th St. Upon arrival a shop behind the address was fully involved in fire. Flames were seen over the top of the home and embers were falling across the street. There were multiple other homes and structures in the immediate area of the fire. The incident commander called for a second alarm and received mutual aid from the Albany Fire Department, Sweet Home Fire and Ambulance District, as well as multiple other agencies that respond to Lebanon main station to standby. It took firefighters about three hours to contain the fire.

The fire did cause minor damage to two of the surrounding buildings. The deck of the home where the fire started did receive damage as well. Fire fighters were able to keep the fire from destroying all but the shop that the fire started in.

Embers did cross over 12th St. and there were several spot fires that the firefighters were able to stop before they were able to grow into a larger fire.

A medic unit was called to the scene to evaluate a patient that was complaining of breathing difficulty from the smoke, however further care was not necessary. No injuries to any civilians or fire personnel were reported.

The fire is currently under investigation.

Quick Thinking Lebanon Teen Puts Out Kitchen Fire (Photo) - 09/06/18

At 12:03 pm Monday the Lebanon Fire District was dispatched for a fire alarm at a residence located at 39933 Mt Hope Drive. Upon arrival crews were met by the occupant who advised that they had a grease fire which they believed was out. The crew of Engine 31 advised the family that they would check it out for them to ensure there was no extension or hidden fire. A thorough scan with the thermal imaging camera revealed that the fire was indeed completely out.

According to the homeowner, there was a pan that was on the stove which had caught fire when the resident went outside and lost track of time. She was in the yard when she noticed smoke coming from the roof vent connected to the range hood. She ran back into the house to check on what was burning and found the pan burning on the stovetop. She attempted to put a lid on the pan (the correct first step!) but it was not big enough to cover the whole pan. Meanwhile, at the same time, her son Chase Paziani, 13, grabbed a fire extinguisher and put the fire out. If it was not for the quick action of Chase and his older brother Garren,16, the outcome could have been much worse.

There was no damage to the house due to the fact that Chase was so quick in getting the extinguisher and knew how to use it properly. In talking with the family after the event, it turns out that Chase has aspirations of becoming a firefighter some day! His Mom was extremely proud of his actions and they most certainly stopped the fire from causing any further damage. The Engine 31 crew praised Chase and Garren and invited them to the Lebanon Fire District at any time for a tour and a visit.

Fire officials would like to use this story to remind people of the importance of kitchen safety in the home. Never leave a stove unattended, and in the event of a grease fire NEVER use water to put the fire out! Water will spread the grease and enlarge the fire. Have a lid handy and cover the burning pan if possible. Finally, have a working fire extinguisher in your home and teach everyone how to use it! The Lebanon Fire District provides free fire extinguisher classes at their station on the third Wednesday of every month between 8am and 5pm.
