The City of Eugene Fire & EMS and the City of Springfield Fire & Life Safety departments merged to form Eugene Springfield Fire in 2010. This partnership has proven to be beneficial to both communities over the last decade. The cities of Eugene and Springfield are evaluating and identifying next steps for Eugene-Springfield Fire governance. This work continues efforts to create the most efficient and effective system for fire and life safety services within our community.


The Eugene Springfield Fire Governance Review Panel was established to

  • enhance and improve the efficiency of service delivery to the community.
  • provide more secure, sustainable, and stable funding for fire and emergency medical response.
  • remove redundancy.
  • continue seamless service across jurisdictional boundaries.
