News Release from Lane Co. Government
Posted on FlashAlert: September 10th, 2022 9:28 AM

Officials would like to remind residents that areas under a Level 3 Evacuation Notice, including the roads within those areas, are closed to the public. Residents who have been evacuated will not be allowed to return until conditions improve and evacuation levels change.

 

The closures are necessary to protect the safety of everyone. People who return to those areas are placing themselves at risk from fire, falling trees, downed powerlines, debris, landslides and the other safety issues caused by wildfire. Unauthorized people can also cause delays in firefighting activity if they are in the way of firefighting equipment or if fire personnel end up needed to assist those unauthorized people.

 

Road closures can be found at www.TripCheck.com and a map of the evacuation areas is available at www.LaneCountyOR.gov/CedarCreek.

 

If people are part of an organized volunteer group for a community agency or organization, they should wait to be deployed through the appropriate channels for their own safety and to ensure they do not interfere with the fire response.

 

If you had to leave livestock or other animals behind, you can request feeding and care assistance from Lane County Animal Services. Animal owners can call 541-285-8227 or fill out the form available here and at www.LaneCountyOR.gov/CedarCreek in the “Animal Evacuation & Sheltering” section.

 

Information about the evacuation notifications and resources is available at www.LaneCountyOR.gov/CedarCreek.

 

There is a non-emergency call center available at 541-682-3977 between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.

Comments are closed.
