About Us

 The Lyons Rural Fire Protection District was formed in 1954 and is a combination department of paid and volunteer staff. The city is a bedroom community that lies 25 miles east of our state capital Salem, Oregon. 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.
