Our primary response area is 37 sq. miles and includes an incorporated small city area, agricultural farming lands, heavy timbered canyon areas and wildland /timbered wilderness with a population of 1570 residents in the city limits and 1270 residents in the rural areas ( US Census statistics 2005).
Lyons RFPD is the second largest district in the Santiam canyon area with two fire stations providing a 24/7 response to fire/rescue emergencies and EMS incidents with a crew of 25 fire volunteers and a paid ALS ambulance staff of 24 part time paramedics and EMT basics. We have mutual/auto aid agreement with 4 other fire districts and mutual aid with one other county adding an additional 400 sq.miles of coverage areas and an additional 14,000 population base.
