Written Plan for COVID-19
Our Fire Department has developed a written plan in compliance with the Governor’s Executive Order No. 20-12.
“To assist volunteer firefighters and their families that have suffered financial hardship, the Oregon Volunteer Firefighters Association (OVFA) has set up a relief fund. You can contribute to the OVFA Firefighter Relief Fund by visiting their donation webpage at https://ovfa.square.site/.”
Lookingglass Rural Fire District is looking for new volunteers. Do you have what it takes?
