On July 30, 2018, Clackamas Fire opened its newest brick and mortar facility in nearly 15 years.
The Fleet and Logistics Center is 20,000 square feet; has five apparatus bays for fleet maintenance; an updated parts room; a fabrication shop; a two ton crane; fluid conveyance system with seven locations on the shop floor; a pump test pit; four separated areas for tire maintenance and balancing, parts washing, shop consumables, and shop tools; and the remainder of the building is being used for Logistics and office spaces.
Clackamas Fire is one of the largest fire protection districts in Oregon, proudly serving over 220,000 citizens, covering nearly 235 square miles, and 20 fire stations.
As the fire district has continued to grow and expand services, in addition to providing fleet services for other fire agencies, a critical need was identified.
The $7.5 million project would not have been possible without voter approval of a $29 million general obligation bond in 2015.
The new facility serves as a vital link between their communities' calls for help and their career and volunteer firefighters arriving quickly, safely, and with the equipment they need to save a life, fight a fire, or solve a problem.
