Letter From The Chief
South Sherman Fire & Rescue is an independent fire district having its own governing Board of Directors. The area protected by the district includes the City of Grass valley, community of Kent; and includes the John Day and Deschutes
River Recreation areas.
South Sherman Fire & Rescue has a long-standing tradition of providing the highest level of public safety service to our citizens. The fire district protects over 387 square miles in southern Sherman County. Providing service to such a large area is a challenge. The fire district depends on volunteers to fulfill staffing needs. The fire district employs part-time medics in addition to its volunteer work force during the summer months.
In the past few years we have gone through some tremendous changes. We have increased our staff, began providing Advanced Life Support with paramedics, and purchased new equipment for our members to just name a few things. There are still many great changes to come.
Firefighters attend training sessions every third weekend of each month from 9:00 am to 5:00pm. The commitment to become a firefighter in our community is extensive. Added to the time commitment for training is the routine call out for emergencies. Personnel are on call 24 hours a day and often respond throughout the night. As you sleep, your dedicated volunteer and professional firefighters are in the community providing service. Many of these dedicated professionals then go on to work in their regular line of employment. The fire district cannot express enough gratitude to our personnel. It is rewarding to see how frequently our citizens share their appreciation for the services we deliver.
South Sherman Firefighters & Medics encourage your participation in our effort to provide the highest level of service we can provide. If you have any comments, or would like to attend our meetings and see what the hottest job in town is all about, please contact our office at (541) 333-2525.
