Central Oregon will be in the path of a total solar eclipse on Monday, August 21st, 2017
Why does this matter?
- Event is expected to draw upwards of one million visitors to the state.
- With the estimated number of people visiting Central Oregon, we will most likely see:
- Significant congestion on major transportation routes
-An increase in the demand for emergency services
Both of which could result in SLOWER than normal responses and are reasons for you to PREPARE.
Fire Danger - EXTREME
Please Help Reduce the Risk of Wildfires
In an attempt to reduce the risk of a wildfire we will be banning campfires / recreational fires. We would also like to take this time to remind people that outdoor burning is closed for the season.
Prepare Yourself and Family
-Shop and get supplies a week or more before the event.
-Have enough supplies for your family and pets.
-Fuel up tanks (gas, propane, etc).
-Medications / Medical Supplies
