Our partners at the Marion County Sheriff's Office are launching a summer driving campaign. See the link to their page. This also serves as a great back to school reminder, given the risks with distracted driving!

Please...please...please drive safely! Put your phones away while driving. Please do your part to make our roads more safe!

Have a great rest of your week and coming weekend!!

Sheriff’s Office Launches Summer Driving Campaign Last Friday the Marion County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Safety Team launched two separate driving campaigns focused to create a safe traveling experience for our visitors and residence. Beginning August 19th and ending September 5th deputies will be working our roadways focusing on impaired and distracted driving. Our partners at the Oregon Department of transportation have offered eleven tips to “ditch the distractions.” 1. Turn it off and stow it. Turn your phone off or switch it to silent mode before you get in the car. Then stow it away so that it's out of reach. 2. Spread the word. Record a message on your phone that tells callers you're driving and will get back to them when you're off the road, or sign up for a service that offers this feature. 3. Install an app. Apps can help you avoid texting while driving. Go to your app store and search for "distracted driving." 4. Pull over. If you need to make a call, pull over to a safe area first. 5. Use your passengers. Ask a passenger to make the call or respond to a text for you. 6. X the text. Don't ever text and drive, browse online or read your email while driving. It's dangerous and against the law in most states. Even voice-to-text isn't risk-free. 7. Know the law. Familiarize yourself with state and local laws before you get in the car. Oregon prohibits the use of hand-held cell phones in addition to texting. 8. Prepare. If using a GPS device, enter your destination before you start to drive. If you prefer a map or written directions, review them in advance. If you need help while driving, ask a passenger to assist you or pull over to a safe location to change your GPS or review your map/directions. 9. Secure your pets. Unsecured pets can be a big distraction in the car. 10. Mind the kids. Pull over to a safe place to address situations involving children in the car. 11. Focus on driving. Multi-tasking behind the wheel is dangerous. Refrain from eating, drinking, reading, grooming, smoking, and any other activity that takes your mind and eyes off the road. The Sheriff’s Office would like to remind our motorist to drive safe and sober, extra patrols are made possible by grants through the Oregon State Sheriff’s Association and the Oregon Department of Transportation.

Marion County Fire Defense Board Lifts Burn Ban

Due to the return of cooler weather and the increase of humidity, the Marion County Fire Defense Board has lifted the total burn ban that was imposed last Thursday, August 18, 2016, effective immediately. Recreational and agricultural fires are allowed within Marion County beginning today. This does not include ODF regulated lands.

Remember that Oregon Department of Forestry Fire restrictions and closures still apply on all ODF regulated/protected lands which includes all burning. Please contact the nearest Oregon Department of Forestry office for details and further information about waivers for regulated use rules including campfire waivers. Campfires in designated County, State, and Federal parks and campgrounds, are not affected at this time. Please refer to those entities for specific regulations for those locations.

Erin WeberOur neighbors have a large fire most every night. They don't have garbage cans so I assume (from the smell as well) that they are burning garbage. Is this allowed?16 hours ago

An important message from Oregon State Fire Marshal Jim Walker:

STATE FIRE MARSHAL URGES VIGILANCE AND EXTREME CARE AGAINST WILDFIRES

With Oregon's hottest temperatures and driest conditions occurring throughout the next few days, Oregon State Fire Marshal Jim Walker is urging all residents to take the utmost care and thorough caution to prevent wildfires.

"A majority of this year's wildfires have been human caused," says State Fire Marshal Jim Walker. "This demonstrates that all of us need to take responsibility for protecting ourselves and our neighbors by preventing wildfires in these extreme conditions."

The Oregon Department of Forestry has reported that since January 1, 2016, there have been 466 wildfires caused by humans. And due to the extreme temperatures, much of Oregon is under a burn ban.

Currently, Oregon has several active wildfires that have put people and homes at risk, and a number of families have received evacuation warnings.

"Our office is in constant communication with the Oregon Department of Forestry and our other wildland partners to assist with firefighting efforts if called upon, said Walker.
