Established in 1954, Banks Fire District #13 provides fire and rescue services to 136 square miles in northwest Washington County, Oregon, serving the communities of Banks, Buxton and Timber. This region, known for its scenic beauty and moderate climate, is mainly rural with close ties to the Portland metro area. Sixty highly trained volunteers respond to more than 500 calls annually, ranging from cardiac emergencies to wild-land fires.

The Banks, Buxton and Timber communities are cumminities that have always enjoyed tremendous citizen involvement. Whether it's volunteers keeping the summer sports going or taking care of the food bank, the Banks, Buxton and Timber community members know the importance of giving back to the community. Because of this culture of giving Banks Fire District continues to provide emergency service with a committed, highly trained volunteer and paid firefighter force. Our staff not only provides a tremendous value to the taxpayers but care greatly about protecting the area they live in.
