"Keno is a beautiful community and reminds me very much of where I grew up in Northeast Oregon. The pine and juniper forests. Pastures and farming ground leading up to hills and snow capped mountains. I grew up camping and hunting, all of which are available here to enjoy.
I intend to serve our community faithfully and succeed by meeting the needs of residents and staff of Keno Rural Fire Protection District."
Come by Station 1 @ 14800 Puckett Road and enjoy a cup of coffee, glass of water or snack at the kitchen table. I am not typically dressed like the photo above! Let's get to know one another.
