High Cascades Complex Announcement

Jackson County Sheriff Announces Removal of Level 1 Evacuation Notice

Incident: High Cascades Complex Wildfire
Released: 9/21/2017

Level 1 Evacuation Removed from Union Creek Area

INCIDENT: High Cascades Fire Complex (West), Union Creek Evacuation Update


Based on current weather and fire behavior, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and the High Cascades (West) Fire Incident Command Team have determined that the fire danger no longer warrants an imminent threat to the public and all evacuation levels for the residents of the Union Creek area will be removed effective 9/20/17 at 6 pm. The Forest Service forest closure will still be in effect until further notice.

The Sheriff’s Office would like to remind the residents of Jackson County, especially those living in the rural parts of the County that we should all be in the Level 1 “Be Ready” mindset. Whether it is a wildfire, flood or winter weather event, we don’t know when an evacuation may be necessary.

We would also encourage all residents of Jackson County to subscribe to the Citizen Alert emergency notification system. Sign up online at www.rvem.org.
