Scappoose Volunteer Fire Fighters’ Association is a non-profit, self-governing organization, operated independently of the Fire District.



Scappose Fire District is a full service emergency response agency. We respond to residential structure fires, commercial structure fires, automobile fires and wildland fires.

All of our firefighters have been trained and certified to respond and mitigate any fire related incident. Our firefighters go through a rigorous academy that teaches them how to perform search and rescues, fire suppression and salvage and overhaul operations. 

Emergency Medical Services


Our volunteers and staff are all locally and nationally recognized emergency medical responders.

Our responders are all CPR/AED trained at the bare minimum. Most of our responders are either Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) or Paramedics. Each responder is recertified through training every two years to maintian the highest quality of care for our community.

Special Services


Our responders are cross trained to also respond to water incidents with our FB43 (Fire Boat). Additionally we respond to HazMat requests, low and high angle rescues, swift water rescues and animal rescues.

As a multi response agency, if we do not have the technical equipment or training to handle a specific emergency, we have both auto-aid and mutual aid agreements with local agencies to ensure that no matter what the scope of the problem, we will take care of you.

Prevention and Public Education


Our members ARE our community and we are always finding ways to give back to those that so generously support us. We provide multiple fire safety programs in our communities and are often in schools and businesses offering training and safety.

We hope you will come and visit us for our July 4th community pancake breakfast and other safety events. Bring the kids and we will show them the trucks and if you have questions about the district or about volunteering, we will be happy to help!
