Douglas Co. Sheriff's Office

CANYONVILLE, Ore. - The Sheriff's Office and Milepost 97 Fire managers have reduced the evacuation notice for residents living in the 100-300 block of Ritchie Road from a Level 3 "GO!" to a Level 2 "Be Set" effective Tuesday, July 30, 2019 at 10:00 am. 

The reduction is largely due to firefighting progress in the area of the homes which have reduced the imminent risk. However, homeowners should still be ready to leave at a moment's notice should conditions deteriorate. Additionally, residents are asked to drive with caution in the area as firefighting activity continues. 

Level 2 "Be Set" means:
  • This level indicates significant danger, if you decide to stay, be ready to evacuate at a moments notice
  • This may be the only notice your receive if conditions worsen
  • Supply your "go kit" with all the essentials to last 2 weeks
  • Stay connected with emergency information and evacuation routes
All other evacuation levels remain in place. Residents may visit the interactive evacuation map to determine what level they may be in. The map can be found at: https://tinyurl.com/y696vqhq
