History of District

            Central Cascades Fire & EMS District Formation

The Central Cascades Fire & EMS District was originally formed as the Crescent-Odell Lakes Rural Fire Protection District on December 7, 1994 under the authority of ORS- 478 and approved by the Klamath County Board of Commissioners. The name was subsequently changed to Central Cascades Fire & EMS on March 1, 2006 to reduce confusion with the nearby Crescent Rural Fire Protection District and the Odell Fire Department located in Hood River, Oregon.  This was also an attempt to stimulate a more cooperative working relationship between northern Klamath County fire districts by genericizing the location name.

Central Cascades Fire & EMS is governed by an elected 5 member Board of Directors.

The District was recognized as a Domestic Non-Profit Corporation by the State of Oregon on June 28, 2002.

The District was recognized as a 501 c 3 Non-Profit Corporation by the Department of the Treasury IRS on August 26, 2002.
