Oregon State Police

Each year, hundreds of first responders and roadside workers are struck along our roadways. Oregon law requires drivers to Move Over or Slow Down when approaching stationary vehicles with flashing lights. It’s not only the right thing to do, it’s the law.

Drivers must move over to a non-adjacent lane (or slow down) when approaching the rear of police, fire, and ambulance vehicles, as well as any motor vehicle that is stopped and is displaying required warning lights or hazard lights, or a person is indicating distress by using emergency flares or posting emergency signs.

If you can safely move over when approaching a vehicle stopped for an emergency, do so. If you can't, slow down.

Slow down means reducing your speed by at least five miles per hour below the posted speed of the roadway.

The fine for this violation is currently $265.00 ($525.00 if the location is within a safety corridor, school zone or work zone.)

Our crews are on the road headed back at this time.

Today, four of six OSFM teams (Linn, Yamhill, Clatsop, and Washington counties) mobilized to support the coordinated wildfire response in northern California, have demobilized after a two-week deployment and started their journeys home from the #AugustComplex. Teams from Marion and Lane counties will begin their journey back to Oregon tomorrow. Safe journeys!

It’s that time of year where the weather is changing and the nights are getting colder. For some people wood stoves are still a primary heat source. This is the time of year that you need to get your chimney and flu cleaned and inspected. Also if you use a furnace in your home, you should have it checked and serviced before the cold weather hits. Doing a few small cleanings and services can save you piece of mind that your family will be safe from fires.

STATE FIRE MARSHAL MOBILIZES RESOURCES TO CALIFORNIA WILDFIRE RESPONSE FOR SECOND TIME IN 2020

The Oregon Office of State Fire Marshal (OSFM) is mobilizing Oregon firefighting resources to assist with the coordinated response to California wildfires, following a request for state-to-state assistance made by California to Oregon.

The OSFM is activating its Agency Operations Center and will be sending six task forces with equipment and personnel to join ongoing firefighting efforts. The task forces were formed on Thursday and are deploying today at 6 a.m.

The mobilized strike teams will be sent from the following counties: Clatsop, Linn, Lane, Marion, Washington, and Yamhill.

As of Thursday, California was currently managing 24 major wildfires across the state, having already recorded 3.9 million acres burned this year, impacting thousands of residents and having incidents threaten lives and structure.

"The Oregon Fire Mutual Aid System (OFMAS) typically mobilizes 15 task forces this time of year to California, given California’s significant losses and continued threat," said State Fire Marshal Mariana Ruiz-Temple. "Oregon will be sending six task forces to California. Our thoughts are with California as they continue to be impacted by these fires. Earlier this month, California sent resources to Oregon to an immediate need on the Almeda fire."

The Pacific Northwest effective yesterday has stepped down to preparedness level 3, meaning the potential for emerging significant wildland fires is normal for the time of year, and there is an adequate availability of firefighting resources and decreased fire activity in the state.

California made its request through the Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC), a national state-to-state mutual aid system. The EMAC request is sent directly to the Oregon Office of Emergency Management. The requests allow for the OSFM to mobilize resources through the OFMAS. The task forces are comprised of Oregon’s structural firefighting agencies, which provide structural firefighting and all-hazards assistance.

Oregon’s structural firefighters mobilized by the OSFM were last sent to California on Aug. 19 to respond to the LNU Lighting Complex, sending three task forces with more than 50 personnel for a two-week deployment to the Napa Valley to support the coordinated response, returning to Oregon on Sept. 2.

This is the fourth year in a row that the OSFM has mobilized resources through the OFMAS and deployed them to support firefighting efforts in California, following requests made through the EMAC.

As I’m sure many of you are aware of the smoke in the valley right now. This smoke is being pushed by these high winds from fires in Central Oregon and Washington. This is supposed to last up to 3 days. Please if you have breathing problems stay in doors. Also please be extremely careful when working outside. A small spark can become a big fire with winds like we are having. If you see wires down please don’t go near them for they could be energized still.

OSFM Task Forces to Arrive Tonight at LNU Lightning Complex Fire in Napa Valley, California

The Office of State Fire Marshal (OSFM) has mobilized three task forces, comprised of 52 members of the Oregon fire service, who will arrive at their staging area later tonight in the Napa Valley, California, to assist with the LNU Lightning Complex fire, threatening structures and property.

California Department of Forestry & Fire Protection (Cal Fire) officials in the Sonoma-Lake-Napa Unit, covering the Napa Valley, are managing the fire response. As of this afternoon, Cal Fire reported that the LNU Lightning Complex fire covered 46,225 acres and was 0 percent contained.

The OSFM mobilized the task forces following a request through the Emergency Management Assistance Compact (EMAC) from California. The request allows for the OSFM to mobilize resources through the Oregon Fire Mutual Aid System (OFMAS). The task forces are comprised of Oregon’s structural firefighting agencies, which provide structural firefighting and all-hazards assistance.

The current deployment marks the fourth year in a row that the OSFM has mobilized task forces through the OFMAS and deployed them to support firefighting efforts in California, following requests made through the EMAC.

In late October and November 2019, the OSFM sent 15 strike teams to respond to multiple fires in northern California, including the Burris Fire in Mendocino County, the Kincade Fire in Sonoma County and the Ranch Fire in Tehama County.

In 2018, the OSFM sent three strike teams to the Mendocino Complex Fire starting in late July 2018, and then another 15 strike teams to the Camp Fire in November 2018. In October 2018, also through an EMAC request, the OSFM sent two incident management teams to Florida to respond to Hurricane Michael.

In November 2017, the OSFM mobilized 15 strike teams to respond to an EMAC request from California to fight wildfires. In December 2017, California sent another request for assistance on the Thomas Fire, near Ventura. The OSFM sent 15 strike teams in response.

Please be careful in your outdoor work and play. It’s dry and as many of you know it’s been windy also. Those two elements can lead to large fires.

For August, weather forecasters are predicting an above-average risk of large fires in central, southwest, and southeast Oregon. Please do your part to support your local firefighters, who continue to respond quickly to wildland fire starts in their jurisdictions that threaten homes, structures, and property. All of us can help prevent human-caused wildfires and keep our communities safe. https://keeporegongreen.org/prevent-wildfires/

Congratulations and job well done Harrisburg!

Tuesday evening Harrisburg Fire held an award ceremony to honor and celebrate the achievement and extraordinary efforts made by our members. 6 of our members and 1 member from Junction City Fire received a unit citation presented by the Harrisburg Fire/Rescue Board of Directors. On February 11th, 2019 at 0302 hours Harrisburg Fire responded to a report of a structure fire with a possible victim trapped inside. These members went above and beyond the call of duty to rescue a person who became trapped in the burning house. As a team these people were able to remove the victim from the burning building and extinguish the fire. Because of the efforts made by these outstanding people the occupant survived the fire and continues to recover from injuries. These members from left to right are Captain Matt McCarl, Firefighter Tyler Oakerman, Firefighter Brett Speedy (JCRFPD), Lieutenant Mike Christensen, Firefighter Aleshia DeLanoy, Fire Chief Bart Griffith. Not pictured is Firefighter Kurt Lang.

On top of the unit citation, Chief Griffith, Captain McCarl and Firefighter DeLanoy were awarded the Medal of Honor from the Oregon Fire Chiefs Association. The Metal of Honor is the highest award given in the state of Oregon to a Firefighter.

All of us at Harrisburg Fire are very proud and thankful for the actions of these individuals. The communities of Harrisburg and Junction City are lucky to have individuals like this who are willing to do whatever it takes to preserve life and property at any cost.
