July 1st is historic for Redmond Fire and Rescue. The fire department officially separated from the City of Redmond and formed a fire district. Chief Tim Moor says they started the process two years ago and through the support of voters in November, they were able to form a fire district.” He says this gives them a more stable source of funding. "In this tough economic environment, it will certainly help, but it doesn't fix our issues. But we at least know how much money is coming in and we don't have the exposure of having those funds cut- if we were in the City." He says fire districts are very common in Oregon, and the only fire department in Central Oregon that is not a fire district is Bend.
