Adair Rural Fire and Rescue (ARF&R) was founded in 1974. We are a dedicated group of volunteer professionals who serve the fire and rescue needs of our community. We provide emergency response, promote public education and assist the community with fire and life safety standards.

The ARF&R district is 18 square miles.  We also provide mutual aid to our neighbors in Albany, Corvallis and SE Polk County.  ARF&R operates out of two stations.  Our main station is at 6021 Marcus Harris in Adair Village and our substation is at 37096 Soap Creek Road at the Southwest end of Soap Creek Valley.

Every member of our department has a strong personal commitment toward team support, volunteer spirit and professionalism. We handle each situation with courage, honesty, personal integrity, cooperation and compassion.

Open House October 7, 2023 from 11:00am to 2:00pm

Everyone is invited to this year’s expanded Open House.  This year a Life Flight helicopter will land at the station.  The Oregon Department of Forestry will present a tabletop live fire defensible space demonstration that everyone living in the rural parts of our district should see.  We’ve added hot dogs and drinks to the food menu.
