Welcome to the Newport Fire Department
Protecting Lives and Property Since 1885
BURN SEASON IS OPEN beginning October 16, 2012
Newport Fire Department serves the citizens of the City of Newport, the Newport Rural Fire Protection District, and our visitors and guests. NFD consists of 12 career staff and over 19 volunteer firefighters. Services we provide include fire suppression, fire prevention, emergency medical services, rescues, and mutual aid to surrounding communities.
Are you up for a challenge? Do you think you have what it takes? Then come on in and join us today --VOLUNTEER!
Volunteering is not for everyone and volunteering to be a firefighter takes a special kind of person! Looking for something challenging, rewarding and somewhere you can help make a difference? Then check out your local fire department. The fire department is always looking to train new people. There is nothing like the feeling you get when the alarm goes off and a call comes over the radio that someone is in distress and needs your help. Better yet, it costs you nothing! All it takes is some of your time, dedication and willingness and Newport Fire provides the rest! We have a great crew of career and volunteer staff always willing to help you get through the process. It's easier than you think...
For volunteer information, just call Melanie at 541-265-9461 or stop by the station located at 245 NW 10th Street and pick up your application.
March 19- July 26: Firefighter I Academy
March 26: Collaboration Efforts Meeting
Burn Permits Extended
If you currently have a burn permit for the calendar year 2012 -- great news! Your permit will now be extended to June 2013. We are now issuing burn permits from burn season to burn season instead of by calendar year. If you do not have a burn permit and would like to burn yard debris, just come on down to the fire station at 245 NW 10th Street in Newport and pick up your FREE permit.
