The Harrisburg Fire Department serves an area of approximately 86 square miles. This area stretches from the Harrisburg Bridge
to Mt. Tom, and 6 miles both North and South of Harrisburg. Highway 99E, Interstate 5, two
rail lines, and the Willamette River pass through our District.
The Department responds to over 400 calls each year, and handles situations involving fire protection,
vehicle accidents, hazardous materials and more commonly, medical emergencies for the residents in the area in which it serves.
Calls range from trash fires to house fires; from simple scratches to massive traumas. Harrisburg Fire also provides medical
services for football games and other community events.
But it’s not all business. Harrisburg Fire exists to support its community, and its mission is to do that
in as many ways as possible, not just fire and life safety.
We participate in various community programs, including
the Fourth of July Breakfast, Parade, and Fireworks show. It’s not uncommon to see fire trucks leading parades
for out high school sports teams in celebration of district or state championships. You will see our team in action at various
school functions, Including Health Fairs and giving tours of the Fire station.
It is a privilege to serve our community. Our goal is to serve with excellence and pride in as many ways as we can
be of benefit to our neighbors.
