    House

    The District is working with Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue and the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office to facilitate training at the existing house on the future site for the new primary school at 7151 SW Boeckman Rd. This house will eventually be demolished and the District is excited to offer this now empty facility for training in which firefighters and police will get to learn how to use new equipment for search and rescue and K9 training. This exercise will take place over the next few months. The community will see multiple fire engine’s and other emergency vehicles on the property and possibly “fake smoke” that they will use to mimic search and rescue efforts in smoke from a fire. These exercises will begin next week, January 23rd.
