Bend Fire & Rescue Volunteers are a diverse group who share their valuable skills supporting the department in many ways. The main areas are:
Safety Outreach for Seniors (SOS) Program:
Administer a free safety program designed to help uncover harmful conditions in and around the home that could place a person, guest or pets at risk of injury or even death. They try to identify Fire Hazards and Fall Hazards and suggest ways to prevent these hazards from occurring.
Help with numerous special events like going to schools with Sparky the Fire Dog and Smokey Bear or taking the Community Engine to 4th of July in the Park, Cascade Children’s Festival, or WinterFest. Educate at the Code Ready Smoke Alarm program, Juvenile Firesetter Intervention Programs, Fire Prevention Week, Car Seat Safety Clinics and be a part of public information campaigns.
5 days per week make sure the mail is deliver to and from each station and the warehouse (and anywhere else that is needed).
Sort, scan, file copy, etc. Whatever assistance is needed to help take the load off the administration staff.
Camp Fire Axe:
Introducing 15-18 year olds to firefighter/paramedic service, help with a variety of activities at this 4 day camp at the Bend Fire Training Center in late June. https://www.facebook.com/campfireaxe/
Engage in numerous types of training from CPR to Fire safety, home hazards, etc. Training is usually conducted at each monthly meeting. Our Volunteers are available to help out wherever there's a need within the Bend Fire Department and the Bend Community.

Be A PulsePoint Lifesaver
We need YOU to help US be a lifesaver. Sudden cardiac arrest is one of the leading causes of preventable deaths. The PulsePoint responder app alerts you when there is a cardiac emergency in your immediate vicinity, so you can get to the scene and start CPR in the critical lifesaving minutes before EMS teams arrive.
Be alerted to nearby CPR events
The PulsePoint responder app will notify you when there is CPR event within ¼ mile of you. The app will also display a map of the area with the event and any nearby registered Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) devices.
Due to COVID-19, station tours are on hold to further notice. Please see our virtual fire engine tour!
Fire Station Tours - a fun and interactive way to teach kids about fire safety.
Station Tours are scheduled on the second and fourth Thursday of every month. Please contact us today to schedule your tour today.
We do request a minimum of one adult for every five children under the age of 10, and a minimum of one adult for every ten children over the age of 10. Also, please keep in mind our personnel will do their best to accommodate the station tour but may have to take a call for service during your tour and need to leave immediately.
