The City of Oregon is a growing community and is the second largest city in Lucas County with approximately 20,000 citizens, covering 28 1/2 square miles. The City has Mutual Aid Pacts with all Lucas County and Ottawa County Fire Departments. We are proud of our city and our Fire Department. We are certain that as you become more familiar with our services, you will agree.
The Oregon Fire Department was organized in 1937 and has been growing ever since. The City of Oregon provides a part-time fire department with three modern fire stations equipped with the highest quality fire equipment. Number 1 Station is located at 5002 Seaman Rd., Number 2 Station is located at 1102 S. Wheeling St., and Number 3 Station is located at 4421 Bayshore Rd. The Fire Administration office is located behind Number 1 Station on Seaman Road. In 2013, the Oregon Fire Department answered 2,249 fire and rescue calls.
One hundred volunteer part-time firefighters are led by a full-time Chief, full-time Assistant Fire Chief who also serves as the Chief of Fire Prevention, and three part-time District Fire Chiefs. The Fire Department also employs a full-time Training Officer and a full-time Administrative Assistant. The part-time firefighters' excellent response time is a result of their living in every neighborhood in the City and responding from home, work, or leisure through a state-of-the-art aging system. Many times they are able to control a fire in its infancy, preventing it from getting out of control.
