Jamie Mountford has posted an update on two local firefighters that have been called out to assist in firefighting efforts in southern Oregon. Captain Tad Lean and firefighter Ben Ware, as part of the NW Washington Strike Team, are enroute in 5 wildland engines (including one of ours) to Salem, OR to assist in firefighting efforts in southern Oregon.


The severity of Oregon's fire season has prompted a larger recruitment then normal. The last time we sent an engine out of state was 2007 to the Harris fire in Lake Arrowhead, CA.

In addition to providing much needed assistance in a critical situation, our firefighters gain skills they are able to utilize at home. More details of specific locations and status to follow.
