The Sisters-Camp Sherman Rural Fire Protection District (District) is preparing to update its customer-centered Strategic Plan and is seeking input from residents of the District regarding its services.  Strategic planning is a management tool that provides direction for an organization and helps build a shared vision with the community and employees.  The plan will identify organizational priorities and establish goals and objectives to prioritize scarce resources, allowing the District to focus its efforts on the most critical issues facing the community.


The District has operated within the framework of a customer-centered strategic plan since 2004, with the last update in 2016.  Over 85% of the identified goals in the current plan have been completed.  Various groups of personnel within the fire department will gather on November 13 to complete the update process, which will be facilitated by George Dunkel from Special Districts Association of Oregon.  Surveys have been sent to all members within the organization, partnering agencies and community residents.


Fire Chief Roger Johnson said, “Strategic Planning for our organization is critical, and seeking input from the community and our partnering agencies is an important part of the process.” Please go to the District’s website at, or click here for a link to the survey  The survey will be available until Friday, November 8 in order to collect and analyze responses.
