Please be advised that your Fire District personnel are equipped and well prepared to take care of our residents.  We have personal protective equipment and a very specific operational plan in case we need to respond to a potential COVID-19 incident.


To help increase our awareness of potential cases, we are requesting to be notified if you are quarantined at home.  This information will allow us to speed-up the deployment of our operational guidelines if we need to treat you in your home.  Your information will be kept confidential.


Please call us at (503) 755-2710 and give us the following information:

  • Your Name

  • Address

  • Contact Information

  • Date you started quarantining at home

  • Time period you plan on being quarantined

  • Any underlying medical conditions you and/or members of your household have


We would also like to call you every three days to check on your wellbeing.  If you do not want to be called, we will respect your wishes. 


As public safety responders, we stand strong and ready to respond to care for our residents.  We appreciate your cooperation.  Thank you.

Meeting & Training Schedule

Notary Public

Need something notarized? Mist-Birkenfeld RFPD has a Notary on staff Monday thru Thursday at no cost to district members.  Remember, you must present a government issued photo ID such as a drivers license or passport.  DO NOT sign document to be notarized until the Notary is present to witness the signature.  Please call for an appointment.


Donate refundable cans and bottles

Share The Spirit would like to thank our community members for the refundable cans and bottles brought to the Main Station.  Keep them coming but please remember to remove lids from bottles. 


Although Snapple and “G2” bottles are recyclable, they are not refundable.


The proceeds from the refundable bottles and cans help fund Share The Spirit Holiday food baskets and Christmas toys for children to families in need during the holidays. 


This great program has brought so much joy to families during the holiday season.  Please help us "Share The Spirit" by donating your refundable cans and bottles.

Box Tops for Education

Please remember to bring in your "Box Tops for Education" to the Main Station and we will make sure Mist Grade School recieves them.  These box tops, which are found on your cereal boxes,  are turned in and the school recieves cash for them to use for school supplies, etc.  A great program to support.
