Marion County Fire District #1

MCFD#1 provides emergency services to citizens in 88 square miles of unincorporated residential, commercial and agricultural property bordering the cities of Salem Oregon and Keizer Oregon.

MCFD#1 Serves 50,000+ citizens living within the Marion County Oregon Fire District #1’s boundaries. Marion County Fire District #1 is a combination agency, supported by both career and volunteer personnel. MCFD#1 currently employs 49 full-time personnel, 1 part-time employee, and approximately 60 volunteer firefighters.

Like many fire departments, the backbone of the district remains the 60 or so dedicated volunteers that selflessly donate their time to protect their community.

The district provides fire/rescue response from eight fire stations, handling over 7,200 calls each year.

The Marion County Fire District is an organization which is known and trusted by our community, respected by our peers and united in the accomplishment of our mission.

MCFD#1 exists to make a positive difference in our community.

We accomplish this by:

(1) Rapid Response
