The measures taken within the first 1-3 hours of a stroke can be critical for a patient. Last July, Paramedics Alan Jones, Katie Davenport, and Jake Beutler responded to a stroke call where they quickly assessed the patient, began life-saving measures, and then notified the stroke center at Good Samaritan Hospital they were on their way with a patient. The Stroke Center at Good Samaritan Hospital wanted to recognize their quick action resulting in reaching the goal of 45 minutes of stroke onset to the patient receiving life-saving medication. The patient regained the ability to speak and was able to go home.
The Corvallis Fire Department would like to remind you of the signs of a stroke so that you can act fast if you need to.
If you notice any of these signs, please call 911 immediately:

B- Sudden loss of balance
E- Sudden change of vision – blurred, blackened, or double-vision in one or both eyes
F- Sudden facial droop, asymmetrical smile
A- Sudden onset of arm or leg weakness on one side of the body
S- Sudden trouble with speaking or understanding speech
T-time to note what time symptoms started and time to call 911

In connection with the crash involving the Tesla, the Corvallis Police Department and Corvallis Fire Department want to make the community aware of potentially hazardous batteries in the area of the NW Walnut and NW Fairlawn.

During the crash, the Tesla car broke apart causing hundreds of small batteries, which power the vehicle to spread across the area. A concerted effort was made to collect as many of the batteries as possible at the time of the crash, but we received reports of the batteries actually going through windows of nearby residences because of the crash.

The public needs to be aware that the batteries:

Can reportedly stay hot to the touch for up to 24 hours and could cause burns if handled.

Can release toxic fumes that may harm people and animals if inhaled.

Can leak substances that may harm people and animals if they are exposed.

Please see the attached images of the batteries so you are familiar with what they look like. If you find one of these batteries, please contact the Corvallis Regional Communication Center at 541-766-6911 and do not touch the battery. Corvallis Fire Department personnel will respond to collect the battery for proper disposal.

Corvallis Fire Department Implements On-Line, No Fee, Burn Permit!

Beginning October 15, 2020, all residents within the Corvallis Rural Fire Protection District and City of Corvallis must obtain, with no fee, an open burning permit from the Corvallis Fire Department in order to conduct backyard burning, agricultural burning, and slash burning. Backyard burning within the city limits of Corvallis will be allowed April 15-30 annually.
Individuals seeking an open burning permit should visit http://corvallisrfpd.com/ or https://www.corvallisoregon.gov/fire to obtain their open burning permit. The permit will outline a list of permit conditions and provide a link to the Willamette Valley Open Burn Announcement to verify burning is allowed that day.
Be sure to check the air quality prior to ignition of your burn piles, and always follow the conditions on your open burning permit. Be fire safe!

The mission of the Corvallis Fire Department is to protect the lives, safety, property, and environment of all persons in the community and surrounding areas we serve; to educate, inform, and enforce life safety with knowledge and fairness; to give the fullest measure of service for the cost.
