Silvia Avila

Avila is one of a kind on this department. She's often first to volunteer and last to leave, she epitomizes what we strive for in our recruits.

She came to the department through her high school senior Pacifica Project and ended up hooked on the excitement and ability to help others in her community. She applies her business, administration, and web design experience at the station when she picks up shifts.

She currently attends Lane Community College for a degree in Paramedicine. After finishing that program, she wants to enroll in the fire service program at Clatsop Community College.

Avila enjoys action filled movies and reads any book that is recommended by friends. When she has time off, Avila enjoys hanging out with family, playing video games, and taking care of others.
