Evacuation Area Re-entry Plan:

Based upon current fire behavior and in coordination with the Chetco Bar Incident Management Team, the Curry County Sheriff’s Office is reducing the Level 3 Evacuation to a Level 2 Evacuation outside of the established fire perimeter within Curry County only. Only residents and land owners are allowed to enter the previous Level 3 Evacuation Areas.


These Areas include:

-Pistol River Road

- Carpenterville Road

- North Bank Chetco River Road to the established fire perimeter

- Gardner Ridge Road to the established fire perimeter

- South Bank Chetco River Road


All residents that live in these geographic areas must present their picture identification to Curry County Sheriff’s Office Staff to receive re-entry materials. Residents can pick up the re-entry materials from 11am to 4pm at Ray’s Market 906 Chetco Ave in Brookings, Oregon.


Residents and land owners will present the materials received from the Sheriff’s Office at the

established re-entry point.


Residents should remain prepared to evacuate in a moment’s notice in the event the evacuation levels change and residents should not return any large animal’s home at this time. Fire and emergency resources will continue to be active in the areas and road systems. Please drive slowly and be aware of additional traffic in the Level 2 Evacuation area.
