The Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District provides fire suppression, emergency medical service and public education to approximately 5,000 full time residents and untold thousands of visitors to the Oregon Coast each year. We respond to an average of 600 calls for service each year from six stations located in Pacific City (Station 82), Beaver Station 83), Neskowin (Station 84), Sandlake (Station 85), Blaine (Station 86) and Hebo (Station 87). Although our district boundaries cover approximately 125 square miles, we respond to incidents in unprotected areas covering over 200 square miles including Oregon Department of Forestry land and the US Forest lands.



We need your help in providing fire protection to our communities. The Fire District will provide you training, equipment and the chance to help your neighbors.
