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.

Use the gauge or test button to check that there is proper pressure. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for replacing or recharging fire extinguishers. If the unit is low on pressure, damaged, or corroded, replace it or have it professionally serviced.
