Bernie Otjen

Title Board President

Bernie Otjen has been a director on the board of Marion County Fire District #1 since July of 2010. Prior to serving on the board Bernie was a Division Chief with Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue and feels that his experience with providing regional fire service and working with community agencies will contribute to the fire district and the citizens we serve.  Bernie chose to run for a position on the Marion County Fire District Board because he saw the need to have MCFD#1 and other local fire agencies to continue looking at a regional Fire/EMS service approach.  Bernie would like to see more and continued regional planning to Fire/Ems services provided in the area.
