To Our Communities:
First, we would like to express our deepest sympathies and condolences to all who have lost homes or property to the fires. Please know that we all grieve with you.
We want to sincerely thank everyone who provided food, water, and financial assistance to our firefighters. Incidents of this type are both demanding and stressful, so your aid to our emergency responders was gratefully accepted. You are all amazing!
Not only are we grateful for your support, but also for your assistance to your fellow community members that needed to evacuate. Your ready response assisted those in shelters with necessary food, clothing, and evacuation of pets and large animals. Your outpouring of care and generosity has been overwhelming.
We wanted you to know how much you are appreciated and how your donations have helped those in need. Without any request from our emergency services team, our community saw the need and went into action providing all the necessary food and supplies to keep our fire teams out on the line. For that, we want to thank you and tell you your support made the difference.
We recognize we live in a community that is more like a family. This area is full of the most generous people in the state, where all the local restaurants, businesses, and citizens saw a need and stepped forward to fill that need. To say we are grateful is an understatement; you have our thanks and our respect. Your support has shown that our communities are a great place to live and work!

September 16 – Scio Fire District continues to remain at no level of evacuation notice.

You may have noticed that smoke is still thick in our area and has now mixed with fog. Please be extra cautious when driving and keep your headlights on at all times. If you walk or bike, consider wearing reflective clothing or any type of light that makes you visible to drivers.

The Oregon Office of Emergency Management reports that the Beachie Creek fire, northeast of us, is now at 20% containment, while the Holiday Farm fire on the McKenzie is at 8% containment. While these numbers don’t seem large, they show great improvement on the fire lines for what were 0% contained fires just last week. Because of this great work, several level two and level three evacuation areas in Linn county have now been downgraded. For more information on those downgrades, visit the Linn County Sheriff’s website at

Finally, the Linn County Sheriff’s Office has set up a non-emergency hotline for wildfire information, resources, and volunteer opportunities for community members who cannot access the internet at (541) 812-2260. We ask that you share this number with neighbors, friends or family members who you know are not online or on social media so that they can also get their questions answered factually.

We are very hopeful that the future days will continue to bring good updates.

Wednesday, September 9 -- there is no evacuation status changes in Scio, Crabtree, Lacomb, Lebanon from yesterday.


There has been some confusion about what the evacuation levels mean when they are shared online. Here are the definitions..

Level 1: READY - Level 1 evacuations are an Alert. Residents should be aware of a danger that exists. Now is the time to “Get Ready”. Residents with special needs, or those with pets or livestock, should take note and prepare for relocating family members, pets and livestock. Refine your evacuation plans and gather the things you will need if you must evacuate.

Level 2: SET - Level 2 evacuations indicate there is a significant risk to your area. Now is the time to be set for immediate evacuation. Residents should either voluntarily relocate to a shelter or designated area or with family/friends outside the area or be ready to leave at a moment’s notice.

Level 3: GO! - Level 3 means there is immediate danger. GO NOW! You are advised to evacuate immediately

There is no change in the evacuation level from this morning (Level 2 -- North of Hwy 226; East of Stayton-Scio Road).

Emergency Preparedness

The Linn County Sheriff’s Office is responsible for the County’s Emergency Management Program. Sheriff Jim Yon is the Emergency Program Manager. He is assisted by Joe Larsen, the Emergency Management Coordinator, who coordinates planning, training and exercising for the county’s emergency preparedness, disaster response, disaster recovery and hazard mitigation. Linn County’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) is located at the Linn County Sheriff’s Office in Albany. The EOC is activated when disasters occur which affect Linn County.

We know that an emergency or disaster can happen at any time. Floods, earthquakes, wind storms, forest fires, and a pandemic are all emergencies and disasters we need to be prepared for on a large scale.

Personal preparedness for disasters can significantly reduce the effect a large or small disaster can have on you or your family. The Linn County Sheriff’s Office has a preparedness outreach program to help citizens prepare for disasters. In addition, the Sheriff’s Office utilizes volunteers to support the county’s emergency preparedness and community disaster response activities.

We encourage all residents to sign up for the Linn-Benton Alert system and you can do so here:
