Timberline is a combination agency. Our membership is made up of both career and volunteer responders. Our roster hovers around 65 members, the majority of which being volunteers. Timberline is an All-Hazards agency, meaning we respond to everything from medical calls and vehicle accidents, to structure and wildland fires, to backcountry and technical rescues. Our membership maintains certifications in all of the above to assure we're ready to answer the call when needed. We respond out of 10 stations which house around two dozen pieces of apparatus. The rural nature of our district makes for a handful of challenges ranging from extreme weather and high altitude, to inadequate water supply for fire suppression, to the steep, winding, mostly unpaved roads that make up the large majority of our community. Despite all of this, we maintain response times and staffing levels as laid out by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and have been able to achieve a rating of 5 by the Insurance Services Office (ISO) for the majority of our coverage area. In addition to covering our own district, TFPD provides mutual aid to neighboring fire districts and deploys personnel and apparatus to wildfires nationally.
