The mission of the County Fire Department is to provide services to the Josephine County necessary to minimize the loss of life and/or property threatened by the hazards of fire, explosions, medical, chemical, and rescue related emergencies, through fire suppression, code enforcement, and conscientious prevention and education. And above all else – Serve God.
The County Fire Department (COFD) was bought from Inland Fire in December of 2012. COFD is owned by Wade Comyford and was established as a private corporation for the purpose of extinguishing fires within the Josephine County. The Fire Department boundaries were established by ISO – International Organization for Standardization.
