Fire suppression priorities are the safety and protection of life, incident stabilization and property preservation. PRFPD is comprised of a Fire District that is 40 square miles. All Parkdale Fire personnel regularly participate in suppression training, fire safety, rescue, emergency medical, and other fire-related training and educational programs. Parkdale Fire personnel are trained and equipped to respond to structure, vehicle and Wildland fires.

Parkdale Fire Department firefighting strategy involves the following basic procedures:

In the event of a fire within the District, the members respond on the fire engine that carries 1,000 gallons of water. If the fire requires more water than what is carried on the engine we will utilize fire hydrants for a water supply. For fires located in areas where there are no fire hydrants or places that have limited access, we rely on the use of “water tender” apparatus that are capable of transporting up to 4,000 gallons of water. The Parkdale Fire Department has three fire engines and one water tender and relies on adjoining fire departments to assist in the event of a fire.

PRFPD also responds to Wildland fires in our area, we have specialized apparatus and training that allow us to effectively control these types of fires. We also work in conjunction with Oregon Department of Foresting and the USFS in controlling these fires.

The Parkdale Fire Department is also included in the Hood River County Wildland Firefighting Taskforce. When called upon, Parkdale Fire Department personnel respond with specialized apparatus to provide assistance with Wildland fires outside of our service area.
