Backyard and Agricultural Burning Closed Due to Weather (Photo) - 05/09/19

Effective immediately, Backyard and Agricultural burning is closed within the service area of Clackamas Fire, due to no forecasted rain, prolonged high temperatures and increasingly dry fuels.  The closure will remain in effect through the weekend with conditions and status of burning scheduled to be reevaluated on Monday May 13, 2019. The use of approved recreational fires and BBQ’s are still allowed with precaution.

Spring is a good time to take a look at your property and create a defensible space in the event of a wildfire.  Take these steps to reduce the risk of a fire spreading to your home:

- Remove debris from gutters

- Limb up trees and remove "Ladder Fuels" such as tall grass or shrubs that allow for easy fire travel

- Keep plants and lawn watered and green

- Move wood piles or other flammable material well away from your house

New Fire Station to Open in Damascus (Photo) - 04/26/19

Clackamas Fire District #1 will hold a ribbon cutting and grand opening ceremony for its newest building, Damascus Community Fire Station 19 on Monday, April 29, 2019 from 3:00-7:00 p.m. A presentation and history of the building will begin at 3:30 p.m., followed by the formal ribbon cutting. Fire District staff and firefighters will be available for tours of the new station, immediately after the ceremony.

The new 12,400 square foot state of the art fire station was designed and built with future growth in mind, and will be a vital structure for delivering emergency services well into the future. Damascus Community Fire Station 19 will house four firefighters and one battalion chief that will staff Truck 319, Interface Engine 319, along with Water Rescue and Boat 308. The existing fire station, 20100 SE Hwy 212, Damascus, will become the new home to the Volunteer Rehab and Support team that works to provide on scene support for firefighters and paramedics on extended incidents.

The Fire District began the process for designing a new fire station through a request for proposals for architectural and contractor services for Hilltop Community Fire Station 16. The request for proposal process resulted in the hiring of Hennebery Eddy Architects, Inc. and Emerick Construction. Due to the damage caused by an electrical fire to the current Damascus Community Fire Station 19, the Fire District’s Board of Directors executed a public contract for emergency construction work. Through a public hearing, the Board of Directors adopted a resolution exempting the Fire District from a request for proposal process for the new Damascus Community Fire Station 19, allowing the Fire District to utilize the same architectural and contractor services as Hilltop Community Fire Station 16.

The cost of building this fire station was $6.4 million and was paid for with funds from the Fire District’s general obligation bond that was passed by voters in May of 2015 for $29 million.

The public is welcome to attend the ribbon cutting and open house ceremony to see this cutting edge building, visit our firefighters and ask questions. Damascus Community Fire Station 19 is located at 19750 SE Damascus Lane, Damascus, OR 97089. Due to limited on-site parking, additional parking is available at:

Damascus Safeway

20151 SE Hwy 212, Damascus, OR 97089
