TVF&R's Move to Tigard

TVF&R Command & Business Ops Center Moving

11945 SW 70th Ave. Tigard, Oregon

Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue is moving its headquarters to a more central location so it can better serve its taxpayers. The bond includes funding to relocate TVF&R’s Command and Business Operations Center (CBOC). TVF&R has purchased a building in Tigard and has hired an architect to prepare the building’s interior for occupancy.

The current headquarters facility in Aloha was built in 1979 to support five stations; today it supports 23. It has space for only a portion of TVF&R staff and lacks adequate transportation access.

While the original plan was to co-locate CBOC with a station in Wilsonville, a substantial drop in commercial real estate prices has enabled TVF&R to acquire a new building in Tigard for significantly less money and sooner than first planned.

The future Command Center will be centrally located in our service area. In addition to housing command and operations personnel, CBOC will also have a Fire Operations Center to direct all resources during a disaster. The building is unfinished, requires seismic upgrading, and should be ready to occupy early in summer 2010.
