Lake Chinook Fire and Rescue chosen as new name


   Lake Chinook Fire and Rescue has been selected as the new name for the Three Rivers Rural Fire Protection District. The governing board of the fire district held a public hearing and voted on May 14 to change the name.
   Lake Chinook Fire and Rescue, formerly the Three Rivers Rural Protection Fire District, was formed in 2008 and serves approximately 40 square miles and is located on Lake Billy Chinook in Central Oregon, nine miles northwest of Culver.
   "The new name creates an identity that is more inclusive of the fire district's larger service area," explained Fire Chief Don Colfels.
   "The district serves the entire Grandview area, Rim Park, Forest Park, Air Park and Three Rivers subdivisions and other local outlying areas," he said.
