To the community we serve throughout the Molalla Rural Fire Protection District:

The Molalla Rural Fire Protection District is engaged in a process of listening, learning, and planning for the future.  We are inviting all members of our community to help shape that future with us.

We are constantly looking for better ways to provide effective response to fire and medical emergencies throughout our community and to encourage all of our community to work with us to prevent the next emergency.

We have asked independent research firm, Campbell DeLong Resources, Inc., to collect the feedback and provide the responses in a manner that does not associate names with comments.  So feel free to give us your honest opinions of what we do well and where we can improve and then look for the publication of our new strategic plan later this year.

Please visit to begin the survey.  We look forward to hearing from you!
