In 2004, the annexation of Lakewoods Village into the Keno Fire District was completed. This annexation brings EMS and Fire Services to the subdivision. Construction of the Keno Fire Department Station #4 at Lakewoods Village was completed in late summer of 2005. Aside from housing emergency vehicles, the station also features a small office, training area, kitchen, restroom, and even laundry facilities. Now that Lakewoods Village has the facility and the equipment, the only thing left is trained operators and skipped personnel to make them work. In the summer of 2004, Keno Fire Chief John Ketchum began training some of the homeowners and friends of Lakewoods Village. Training sessions continue to bring new trainees.
All homeowners are encouraged to complete the necessary training to become a Volunteer Firefighter. For more information on getting involved check out the Fire Training Schedule below or contact John Ketchum at (541) 883-3062. Fire training is held at Station #4 in Lakewoods Village. If you’re more interested in emergency medical training than fire training, there is an opportunity for you as well. Check the Fire Training Schedule frequently for updates!
