Dobbins/Oregon House Volunteer Fire Department Mission
The mission of the Dobbins-Oregon House Volunteer Fire Department is to protect the lives and property of the people in our community from hazards like fires and natural disasters, and to save lives by providing first-responder emergency medical care and rescue services.  

The Dobbins-Oregon House Volunteer Fire Department is committed to serving our community with the highest level of life and property protection. We achieve this by providing excellent and compassionate care in an atmosphere that encourages innovation and professionalism for our group of well-trained and dedicated volunteers that represent our community and are proud to serve.




Extrication Training

Structure Fire Training

The Dobbins/Oregon House Volunteer Fire Department is comprised of a Chief, two Assistant Chiefs, three Captains and three Lieutenants, with the maximum number of personnel set at 25. Almost all of the current firefighters are Emergency Medical Technicials (EMTs) who carry well equipped medical bags in their private vehicles for quick response as needed. The average age of the firefighters is 30+ and the average years firefighting/EMT experience is 10.
Volunteer firefighter training is held each Wednesday evening at 6:30 PM and on occasional Saturdays for special training (eg. vehicle extrication, structure fires, hazardous materials incident response, and joint exercises with neighboring districts).
Our new fire station was completed in 2008 and  houses three fire engines, two water tenders and the rescue (squad) vehicle (see links at left to view apparatus). Other engines are located at substations in Dobbins, Oregon-House and Collins Lake.
