Umatilla RFPD

The Umatilla RFPD is a combination department, meaning that a few hard-working paid people keep the district running, but we rely heavily on dedicated volunteers to truly get our mission done.

Our volunteers are trained to the same high standards as career, paid firefighters, but they're doing it outside of their normal daily activities.

Our volunteers come in all ages and sizes, and from many career fields like construction, corrections, administration, and medical fields.

Chief Phillips retired from our closest fire service partner, Umatilla County Fire District #1 .Chief Phillips provided an opportunity to me (Chief Steven Potts) in 1997 at a crossroads in my life. That opportunity has led me down a path of which I could not be more thankful for. Thus, his loss at such an early age has a profound impact on me.
