The South Lane County Fire and Rescue Board of Directors is currently reviewing an incident of alleged offensive Facebook posts by our Fire Chief. We take this matter very seriously.
We take great pride in the public’s trust in our organization and work hard every day to continuously earn that trust. We are here to compassionately and professionally serve all South Lane County Fire District residents.
