Oregon Fire Safety Info

Northwest Oregon is facing significant wildfire threats right now. This is a precarious situation that can quickly become extremely dangerous. As firefighters continue working to control these wildfires amid high winds, there is still a significant risk for more fires to start. We must all be vigilant and avoid doing anything that could create sparks, and we must prepare to keep our families safe.

With dry, warm temperatures escalating risk, I want to make sure you know where to get the most accurate, up-to-date information:

Smoke and Air Quality

Power Outages

Road Closures

  • Many roads may be closed because of the fires. If possible, remain close to home. If you must travel, be cautious, and please check the Oregon Department of Transportation TripCheck for the latest conditions – which can change rapidly – before you go.

I will continue to share more useful resources as they become available. My thoughts are with our firefighters, first responders, and everyone who is at risk of evacuation.
