“We, the members of Cascade Locks Fire and EMS, are here to serve and protect our community, environment, and surrounding areas in a professional and timely manner; whenever the need arises.”
We would like to thank everyone who helped with the fire on 8/27. Without you the incident could have been much worse. Thank you to all the home owners who evacuated quickly and orderly. It was a reminder to us all that we are still in a very extreme fire danger. We are incredibly grateful for the rain that we have had lately, but PLEASE don’t let it make you complacent. Fire danger is still very high and fuel moistures are very low. You can protect your homes by creating at least 30 feet of space that is clear of large over hanging branches, dense brush, or tall grasses. Maintaining flower beds and not using bark dust up against your home will also help. Bark dust tends to spontaneously combust when it is at high temperatures for long periods of time and it allows fire to travel unnoticed as it smolders. Again, many thanks to everyone and kudos to the community! We were very lucky.
