The Alfalfa Fire District covers about 64 square miles with approximately 1240 residents. Boundaries of the AFD are within Deschutes and Crook Counties. All of our firefighters, medical responders and support team are volunteers.
The Bend Fire Department has the Ambulance Service Agreement (ASA) for our fire district which means they are responsible for paramedic and ambulance service. The AFD firefighters and medical responders provide first responder care such as incident location, scene stabilization, CPR/AED and first aid until Bend Fire Paramedics arrive.
Our volunteer firefighters and medical responders are dispatched through DC911. We are trained and equipped to respond to all types of emergencies including structure fires, wildland fires, vehicle fires, medical aids, vehicle accidents and rescues.
The mission of the Alfalfa Fire District is to enhance community safety through Fire response, Emergency Medical Services (EMS), community education and fire prevention.
