News Release from Lane Co. Government

Posted on FlashAlert: September 11th, 2022 3:16 PM

Following the reduction of evacuation levels for much of the Oakridge and Westfir areas and fewer people seeking services, Lane County will close the temporary evacuation point at Lane Community College today, Sunday, September 11, at 5:00 p.m.


Additionally, due to significantly decreased call volume, the non-emergency call center will close today, Sunday, September 11, at 5:00 p.m. Residents can call 2-1-1 for information.


Evacuees who remain in shelters will continue to receive services from the Red Cross.


Lane County Animal Services (LCAS) will continue to operate the large animal evacuation shelter at the Lane Events Center to provide a safe place to house animals from properties in Level 2 (Be Set) and Level 3 (GO NOW) areas.


People who have mobility limitations, specials needs or who are medically fragile are encouraged not to return the Level 2 (Be Set) area. People who lack access to reliable transportation and those with large animals or pets that can be time consuming or difficult to move are also encouraged not to return to the Level 2 (Be Set) area.
