Crook County Fire & Rescue Information

Brasada Ranch Management was asked by the Board to gather information regarding the Crook County Fire & Rescue’s program as it pertains to Brasada Ranch. The CC Fire & Rescue is supported by a combination of both paid and volunteer employees. The nearest station is located in Powell Butte on Reif Rd. and is manned 24/7 with both paid and volunteer firefighters, paramedics and EMT’s. The volunteer staff is trained through a comprehensive program.

The community of Brasada Ranch falls under the fire department’s mutual and automatic aid services. In the event of a confirmed structural fire with the Brasada Ranch community, aid is automatically dispatched from Bend, Redmond, Powell Butte/Prineville. When needed Crook County Fire & Rescue may also call other counties to scheduled additional support if necessary. This is mainly used in the event of a forest fire. Response times vary based on the location within the community, however most of the homes within the community are roughly 5-8 miles from the Powell Butte Station.

The Crook County Fire & Rescue Battalion Chief and Fire Marshall, Russ Deboodt encourages Brasada Ranch residents to reach out to him at 541-447-5011 with any questions.

In the event of a fire, please call 911 and if applicable reach out to our onsite resort services team at 541-948-7555 to assist.
