Who We Are - About Us

 

The Sublimity Fire District is a political subdivision of Marion County, chartered under the authority granted by the Oregon State Constitution and governed by an elected board of five directors.

 

The 44-square mile Sublimity Fire District includes the incorporated limits of the City of Sublimity, its urban growth boundary and the rural area surrounding it. Some 4000 residents depend on the wide variety of services offered by the fire district.

 

Within the city limits, growth is a significant factor. Residential growth is ongoing. The city has approximately 75 developable acres within its limits. Several large tracts have not yet been developed.

Currently, Sublimity Fire District has 30 volunteers who respond out of two fire stations: Station #51 (headquarters) and Station #52 (a sub-station northeast of the City of Sublimity). Three of the volunteers are unpaid residents who live at the station. Paid staff includes a full-time fire chief, and a part-time office administrator.

Who We Are - Our Board of Directors

 

As a body, the board of directors has a great deal of responsibility. The board of directors sets the direction, mission, tone and strategic vision for an organization, all of which must be done in keeping with the board’s fiduciary duties of obedience, care, and loyalty.
