Lyons Rural Fire Protection District

Lyons Rural Fire Protection District proudly protects 2000+ people living in an area of 37 square miles. We operate out of 2 stations that protect a primarily rural area. Our department is a public department whose members are all volunteer firefighters and part-time paid ambulance personnel.

We are located 25 miles East of Salem, Oregon in the foothills of the Cascade Mtn Range and bordering the beautiful Santiam River. This area is supported by the logging industry and farming. Chief Bob Johnston has served as our Fire Chief since March 1987. We are governed by Board of Directors: Frank Rockwell, Steve Walker, Jerry Tabler, Shannon Waddle & Traci Moore. Micki Valentine is our Office Administrator. Our auxilliary group, led by Debbie Johnston, provides support with food and snacks after an exhausting fire call. Visit our other website at
