Another hard day of training on the beautiful Willamette River! While this looks like a ton o‘ fun (it was) this training is conducted by our wonderful Firefighters with the professionalism it deserves. When bad things happen to good people on the river or in the community, seconds count. Things like identifying river hazards, understanding river orientation, crew communications, using throw ropes to rescue someone, and transfer between craft processes were all reviewed during this training event to keep the rescue crew sharp and ready if the call for help comes! Great job everyone!

Corvallis Postpones Backyard Burning

Corvallis Postpones Backyard Burning

April 14, 2021 - The National Weather Service has issued a “high fire danger” warning this week for South Willamette Valley. Higher than normal temperatures in conjunction with high winds and low humidity are all contributors to an elevated fire danger. As a result, the Benton County Fire Defense Board has decided to suspend all back-yard burning until weather conditions change.

The backyard burn ban is in effect for both the City of Corvallis and the Corvallis Rural Fire Protection District. Please contact the Corvallis Fire Department Burn Line at 541-766-6971 for current information.

Aren’t we lucky? In Corvallis, we are so fortunate to have the beautiful Willamette River and Mary’s Rivers for viewing and recreation. However, sometimes things can happen on the water that can be extremely dangerous to our community members. To keep our Corvallis Firefighters ready for any situation, they continually train on a variety of equipment and situations. This week, the crews have been refreshing their marine “Deck Hand” skills; reviewing the equipment, operator functions, and responsibilities.
Should be a beautiful spring and summer, here’s to enjoying it safely together!!

Great information about smoke alarms!

Great information about smoke alarms!

If you encounter a power outage and have hardwired smoke alarms, you will want to test your smoke alarm batteries to ensure they are working properly. Most hardwired smoke alarms have a backup battery and a low battery signal (chirp). As days pass without power, these batteries can drain and could stop working. Change the batteries per the smoke alarm manufacturer’s recommendations. If the smoke alarm is over 10 years old, it’s time to replace the entire unit.

For more information on smoke alarms, visit https://www.oregon.gov/osp/programs/sfm/Pages/Smoke-CO-Alarms.aspx.

Carbon monoxide, also known as CO, is called the “Invisible Killer” because it's a colorless, odorless, poisonous gas. Generators and improperly-used or incorrectly-vented fuel-burning appliances such as furnaces, stoves, water heaters and fireplaces can release CO into your home. We recommend having a CO detector in your home that you test once a month and know the signs of CO poisoning:
Headache
Fatigue
Shortness of breath
Nausea
Dizziness
Mental Confusion
If you suspect a CO leak in your home, please get out and call 911.

A-Shift crewmembers conduct a training exercise using a ladder truck. It’s over 47’ long and 20’ wide with the outriggers fully deployed. The ladder can reach the rooftop of buildings up to 100’ in height, if we can position it close enough. For training purposes, your Corvallis firefighters choose buildings that may present unique challenges in order to increase familiarity and efficiency should we have to engage in firefighting operations.
