Cloverdale Rural Fire Protection District Position 4

Special districts in Oregon are formed to govern specific resources. Examples are people’s utility districts, library districts, sewer districts, irrigation districts, ports and cemetery districts. Some districts get revenue only from taxes. Others, such as water districts, get revenue from ratepayers. Others may combine the two sources. Each district is governed by a board of directors which is responsible for the operation of the district and its financial accountability. ( https://www.oregonlaws.org/ors/198.010 ) Qualifications: Candidate must be a registered voter or an landowner in the district. If the district has a supporting ordinance, employees of the district are not eligible. ORS 478.050Salary: A member of the governing body of a district may receive an amount not to exceed $50 for each day or portion thereof as compensation for services performed as a member of the governing body. Such compensation shall not be deemed lucrative. The governing body may provide for reimbursement of a member for actual and reasonable traveling and other expenses necessarily incurred by a member in performing official duties.

Your Experience/Qualificatons 21+ years of Cloverdale Fire Department Volunteer service. 4 years Cloverdale Fire Department Board
County Deschutes
Term 2nd term
Cloverdale Rural fire District has a very active Website. It is kept up to date with meeting times and meeting minutes. The Fire Chief is also available to answer questions. Notices of meetings are published in the Nugget Newspaper which is delivered to every address in our district and found online. If I am talking to someone and the topic of the Fire Department comes I can answer some simple questions( i.e. Meeting times, size of the district, how long I volunteered...) All other questions will be redirected to the Chief of the fire district, or the active website, that includes phone numbers and contact information.
A knowledge of the fire service in Cloverdale Fire district. A knowledge of the Cloverdale Fire district terrain and the hardships associated with some of the district. Experience as an EMT Basic and a volunteer Firefighter 1 waiting on a scene, for help from other first responders, responding from their homes, work, or the neighboring fire district. A knowledge of what must be done to improve the safety of the citizens of this Fire District.
We must support our citizens and guests, with the best fire and medical responses available. We must strive to improve those responses. Right now that would includes a partnership with the Sisters Camp Sherman Fire District and going for a 5 year serial levy. Both of these actions would directly improve fire safety and health safety in our District. These actions, would allow us to have 2 paid Fire Fighter /Medics on duty 24 hours a day. They would allow us to have an ambulance at station 602 staffed with those Fire Fighter/medics shortening the response time for both life safety and Fire Safety.

Your Experience/Qualificatons I have participated on committees for schools and churches in each community we have lived.
County Deschutes
Term 4 year
I would make sure that meetings were publicized on all platforms that community members use. I would also utilize any form of communication I could to encourage them to attend the meetings so that they would have a voice in the decision-making process. I believe that any contact and participation the community has with the Fire District and their activities and projects promotes safety for the whole community.
I have served on numerous committees both at the school district level and at churches in every community we have lived in. I have learned from those experiences that it takes patience, respect and willingness to work together to make progress and decisions.
I believe that the Fire Corp is a valuable tool for our community. Cloverdale has just begun to get this program up and running and I believe it would be important to help encourage the progress and promote it more publicly to the community that the opportunity to serve and protect does not have to just be in a fire suit on an engine. We all can serve! First on our own properties and also through the Fire Corp organization.

I also believe that participating in community events is very important. This keeps fire safety at the forefront of everyone’s minds if they consistently see the Fire District personnel and participate in activities with them.

Social Media is another great tool that can be utilized in keeping the community aware of conditions, activities, and projects to keep them and their property safe at all times.
