Fire Chief Todd RileyWelcome to Bend Fire & Rescue.  BF&R is an all-risk organization and is the largest fire department in Oregon east of the Cascade Mountains.  We are a full time paid municipal fire department that serves the residents and visitors of Bend.  Through a unique partnership with Deschutes Rural Fire Protection District #2, we also serve the residents outside of the city limits. 

We take pride in our EMS delivery, utilizing both Advanced Life Support and Basic Life Support ambulances.  BF&R is proud to be an American Heart Association “Gold” award recipient for our cardiac survival numbers, which are among the best in the nation. In addition to progressive EMS service delivery, BF&R also provides outstanding service in structural and wildland fire suppression, fire prevention and investigation, public education, technical rescue, and hazardous materials response. 

Our mission unifies members of this proud organization: protecting lives and supporting our community with compassion, professionalism, and teamwork. We are guided by six values that are embodied by our workforce: resilience, integrity, compassion, respect, optimism, and humility. We accomplish our mission through our recruitment and hiring practices, stringent training standards, continuing education, and equipping our staff to do their difficult jobs safely and effectively.  The dedicated individuals who wear our uniform are focused on providing excellent customer service and we take pride in the service we are entrusted to deliver.
