Chief’s Message

Thanks for visiting our website. Nehalem Bay Fire & Rescue District strives for excellence in training and service delivery. We understand that when you call 911, you often times are inviting us into your most sacred place, your home, to help you or a family member. We take that very seriously and train our personnel to be professional and competent to handle your incident. Of course none of this could be accomplished without the citizens of our District supporting us through tax dollars and for some, time given. We work hard at providing you excellent emergency services by the most economical means, while making sure our volunteers have the best equipment possible to do their jobs efficiently and safely.

Feel free to contact us with questions, a station tour or just to get to know your local fire district personnel.

 Thank you, 

Perry Sherbaugh Fire Chief
