TVF&R to Host Open House for Charbonneau Station 54 (Photo) - 09/26/22

On Saturday, Oct. 1, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue will host an open house and provide tours of Station 54 located within the Willamette Professional Building at 8995 Southwest Miley Road in Wilsonville. Families and community members are invited to see the station, meet with firefighters, and learn fire and life safety tips. The open house will also include brief remarks at 11:30 a.m. from Fire Chief Deric Weiss, TVF&R Board President Randy J. Lauer, Wilsonville Mayor Julie Fitzgerald, and other leaders.

The 2,592-square-foot station opened in September 2021 during the COVID-19 pandemic. It houses a two-person crew operating Rescue 54. A rescue is a medical transport unit staffed with two firefighter-paramedics who can also respond to fires. Firefighters are excited to serve the community in a station that features individual sleeping quarters and comfortably accommodates firefighters of all genders. The station includes a kitchen, fitness room, office space, sleeping quarters, and detached apparatus bay. The station’s smaller footprint reflects TVF&R’s dynamic service delivery model as most calls for service in the area are medical in nature. 

District leadership has sought a permanent property to site a fire station to better serve the Charbonneau area for several years but when a long-term option could not be found, it was decided that a lease within the Willamette Professional Building location was the best option available. The fire district intends to continue looking for property as a permanent station location is preferred.

Since opening last September, crews of Station 54 have transported more than 1,000 people to area hospitals and responded to hundreds of calls for service.
