Douglas County Fire District No. 2 and Winston-Dillard Fire District will be joining the Douglas Forest Protective Association (DFPA), the Umpqua National Forest, and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Roseburg District in announcing that the 2022 fire season will officially begin Friday, June 24th at 12:01 AM. Douglas County Fire District No.2 and Winston – Dillard Fire District will be following the same fire restriction listed with DFPA.
The Winston-Dillard Fire District will be doing annual fire hydrant flow testing during the months of May and June. During this testing period, your water could become discolored. This condition is rare and should clear up quickly.
If you notice excessive discoloration, or it does not clear up quickly, please notify us at 541-679-8721 or the Winston-Dillard Water District at 541-679-8464.

The Winston-Dillard Fire District provides the FireMed Ambulance Membership Program. FireMed members receive emergency ambulance care and transportation within the service area covered by WDFD and also through reciprocal agreements with other agency areas of Oregon. Although you do not have to be a member to be transported, membership offers several important benefits: When a FireMed member uses the ambulance service, we will bill any insurance coverage providing medical benefits that they may have. The member will not receive a bill for any un-related balances.
The FireMed Program rates has been the same for five years. WDFD Board of Directors have decided to raise the renewal rates to $75.00. We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause you. If you have any questions or concern please feel free to call the WDFD business office at 541-679-8721.
