Ramsey Canyon Fire Evacuations Update -  08/26/2018 4:00 p.m.

White City, Ore – Thanks to the work of fire crews, and favorable weather conditions the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office is reducing the evacuation levels of the Ramsey Canyon Fire.

Areas previously under a Level 3 “Go” evacuation notice will reduce to Level 2 “Be Set.” Areas previously under a Level 2 “Be Set” notice will reduce to a Level 1 “Be Ready.”

The following is a complete list of evacuations for the Ramsey Canyon Fire:

Level 3 “Go”

There are no Level 3 notices currently associated with the Ramsey Canyon Fire.

Level 2 “Be Set”

East Evans Creek Rd., beginning at the address of 17935, and continuing east including addresses 18505, 18509 (all accessed off of West Fork Evans Creek Rd.), then continuing to include the address of 19373 at the intersection of Meadows Rd; West Fork Evans Creek Rd., the addresses 18504 and 18508; Ramsey Rd., beginning at the address 13469 and proceeding north to include 13001 and 14738 (accessed off of BLM 35-2-20) and continuing to the Meadows Rd. intersection; Meadows Rd, proceeding south from East Evans to include the address of 16880.

Level 1 “Be Ready”

East Evans Creek Rd., beginning at the address 15513 and ending at 16995, and beginning at the address of 19395 and continuing to include the address of 21043 East Evans Creek Rd.; Meadows Rd, beginning at the address 16800 and 16821, then proceeding south to include the address 14765; Ramsey Rd., beginning at the address 13465 and proceeding south to include the address of 11655.

Roadblocks will remain in place to restrict traffic to residents and fire personnel.  

A Level 1 evacuation means “Be Ready.”  Residents should be aware of the danger that exists in their area, monitor emergency services websites and local media outlets for information. This is the time for preparation and precautionary movement of persons with special needs, mobile property and (under certain circumstances) pets and livestock. If conditions worsen, emergency services personnel may contact you via an emergency notification system.

A Level 2 evacuation means “BE SET” to evacuate.  This level indicates there is significant danger to your area, and residents should either voluntarily relocate to a shelter or with family/friends outside of the affected area, or if choosing to remain, to be ready to evacuate at a moment’s notice.  Residents MAY have time to gather necessary items, but doing so is at their own risk. THIS MAY BE THE ONLY NOTICE THAT YOU RECEIVE. Emergency services cannot guarantee that they will be able to notify you if conditions rapidly deteriorate. Area media services will be asked to broadcast periodic updates.

A Level 3 evacuation means “Go,” and you need to LEAVE IMMEDIATELY! Danger to your area is current or imminent, and you should evacuate immediately. If you choose to ignore this advisement, you must understand that emergency services may not be available to assist you further. DO NOT delay leaving to gather any belongings or make efforts to protect your home. Access to evacuated areas may be denied until conditions are safe for citizens to return. DO NOT plan to return to check on your house or animals. If it’s not safe for you, it’s not safe for them!
