Interactive Map Created to Show Evacuation Zones

Douglas Co. Sheriff's Office

DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ore. - Through a partnership with Douglas County Sheriff's Office Emergency Management, Milepost 97 Fire Managers and Josephine County Emergency Management, residents affected by the Milepost 97 Fire can now visit an interactive map to see exactly what evacuation zone they are in. 

The website, is now operational. Douglas County Emergency Management and Milepost 97 Fire managers provided information to Josephine County about the evacuation zones and the fire. Using specialized software, Josephine County was able to produce the map for our community to use.

Douglas County Emergency Manager Wayne Stinson said, "Over the years Jackson, Josephine and Douglas Counties have come to see the value in working cooperatively on disaster planning. Most events are not limited to County lines and we see the value, not only in our staff workload, but in also how it provides coordinated and less confusing information to the public. The true benefit is to our communities."

Residents are encouraged to continue monitoring official sources for additional information about the incident.
