By LYDIA PLAHN/for The Herald  —  The Red Cross is preparing Lowell High School to become an evacuation center for people displaced by the Bedrock Fire.

As parts of Fall Creek areas moved to a level three evacuation order, the Red Cross representatives came to the school and were available to provide resources to anyone evacuating.  They set up late afternoon Sunday and left at 8 p.m.

A level two evacuation notice was set for Peninsula Road East of Timber Creek, and Big Fall Creek Road east of Peninsula Road. In the case of level three notices, the Red Cross will turn the high school into an evacuation shelter capable of helping evacuees.

A representative of the Greenhill Humane Society was present to help with any small animal needs of evacuees. Large animals will be referred to Lane County Animal Services.
