The North Lincoln Fire & Rescue District #1 protects Lincoln County along Highway 101 north from Cascade Head; south to the Siletz River; eastward along Highway 18 to the Van Duzer Corridor and along the Siletz River Highway #229 to milepost #5.5. Included in this area are the communities of Rose Lodge, Otis, Neotsu, Roads End, Kernville, Cutler City, Schooner and Drift Creek, as well as, all of Lincoln City.
This District is comprised 4 Career officers and approx 60 volunteer personnel. The District responds to a diversity of emergency services including: fire suppression, medical and technical rescue, water rescue, rope rescue, and hazardous materials incidents. North Lincoln Fire & Rescue also offers a variety of prevention, fire safety education services, and emergency preparedness classes.
In 2004 NLF&R responded to nearly 1500 alarms, 370 of which were fire calls. The District relies heavily on the volunteer's response to these alarms and we greatly appreciate employers allowing our volunteers the leeway to respond when possible. The District is always looking for dedicated people to volunteer as firefighters. Volunteers, while preparing to serve the public, gain much knowledge and insight into the many interesting facets of modern fire services.
