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.

Gasoline Safety Tips (Part 1 of 2)

Keep gasoline out of children's sight and reach. Children should never handle gasoline.

If fire does start while handling gasoline, do not attempt to extinguish the fire or stop the flow of gasoline. Leave the area immediately, and call for help.

Do not use or store gasoline near possible ignition sources (i.e., electrical devices, oil- or gas-fired appliances, or any other device that contains a pilot flame or a spark).

Store gasoline outside the home (i.e., in a garage or lawn shed) in a tightly closed metal or plastic container approved by an independent testing laboratory or the local or state fire authorities. Never store gasoline in glass containers or non-reusable plastic containers (i.e., milk jugs).

Store only enough gasoline necessary to power equipment and let machinery cool before refueling it.

Never use gasoline inside the home or as a cleaning agent.
