"Preparation is the Separation between being a Firefighter - or becoming the Best Firefighter that you can be." Carp...

This site is dedicated to the memory and vision of Our Fallen Brother, Captain Randy Carpenter, Coos Bay Fire & Rescue.

His dedication and selfless commitment to his fire brethren will ever serve as a call to action in our Mission to assist the Fire Community, whenever needed, in accessing training, education, and information that otherwise may not be available or utilized.

Randy wanted nothing more than when the rescue is made, the fire is out, the job is done and the shift is over, everyone gets to go home. We of The Randy Carpenter Memorial Foundation aspire to nothing less.

Learn more, practice often, train always and BE SAFE!
