Redmond Fire & Rescue (RFR) is seeking a Fire Chief to lead this growing district located in the high desert of Central Oregon about three hours southeast of Portland and 30 minutes north of Bend. The District provides EMS, fire, and rescue services to an estimated population of 50,000 total residents: about 38,000 within the City of Redmond and 17,000 in the surrounding unincorporated areas.
RFR is an all-hazards public safety organization that provides traditional fire protection, wildland firefighting, and first response and medical transport services at both the Basic Life Support and Advanced Life Support levels. RFR also provides aircraft rescue and firefighting services to the Redmond Municipal Airport. In 2022 RFR responded to over 7,100 calls for service.
Redmond Fire & Rescue is ready for its next Fire Chief to strategically provide leadership in this fast-paced organization where there is a strong consensus and buy-in on the future direction. The next Fire Chief will have the opportunity to use their experience, wisdom, and energy to work with a unified governing body and labor group to advance the District to its next level. The organization has a “can do” attitude and strives to focus on service. If you love the outdoors, 300 days of sunshine a year, and desire to help grow an organization — this is a great opportunity for you.
