The Umatilla RFPD is run by a full-time, paid Chief assisted by a FF/EMT and staffed by volunteer firefighters, EMTs, and officers. Our volunteers range in age from early twenties to late fifties; and they range in occupations from trades, to medical, to clerical and even professional careers.Our all volunteer force must meet the same training and education requirements as professional firefighters and EMT's. So you know when you dial "911" you'll be receiving top quality care and service from dedicated, professional providers who are also your neighbors.
We perform several non-emergent functions in the community as well. Around Christmas time we partner with the Umatilla Volunteer Firefighters Association
to sell Christmas trees to provide food baskets for needy families and to help fund their other activities throughout the year.
