Drakes Crossing Fire District is located in the eastern Willamette Valley, 20 miles
east of Salem. Our district covers land between Silverton and Sublimity on Highway 214, on the Silverton side of Silver Falls
State Park. We also provide coverage for Silver Falls State Park and Longview Fiber even though they are not part of our district.
We serve a residential population of 800 across 25 square miles and also cover over 1 million people who pass through Silver
Falls State Park each year. Contrary to popular belief, we are not a Fire Department; we are a Fire District, with over
sight by a five person Board of Directors, not a city council like a true "department".
mission of the Drakes Crossing Firefighters is through training and dedication; provide a professional service of fire protection
and medical service to the citizens and visitors of the Drakes Crossing community.
