UPDATE -- CURFEW NOW LEVEL 3 ONLY: Clackamas County establishes curfew during wildfire crisis - 09/21/20

UPDATE (Monday, Sept. 21, 2020) -- CURFEW NOW LIMITED TO LEVEL 3 EVAC ZONES

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office is making new adjustments to the curfew enacted on Thursday, Sept. 10. 

Effective immediately, the curfew will ONLY be in effect in the Level 3 ("Go") evacuation zones. 

These zones are indicated on the Clackamas County Wildfire Evacuation Zones web page. Level 3 is indicated by the red-colored zone.

Curfew hours remain the same, from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.

The curfew is lifted in all other areas of the county NOT at Level 3.

Conditions around the County have seen improvement, and evacuation levels have been steadily reduced. However, firefighters, first responders, and clean-up crews are still actively working in the Level 3 areas. Our goal is to lift the curfew as quickly and safely as possible.

The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office continues to have an increased patrol presence -- with extra deputies patrolling evacuation areas to enforce the curfew, protect property, and hold offenders accountable.


EARLIER (Sunday, Sept. 13) -- CHANGE IN CURFEW ZONES

The curfew is lifted in all other areas of the county NOT at Level 2 or Level 3.

Although the weather predictions are in our favor, the fire conditions can change rapidly.  The curfew will be based on the Clackamas County Wildfire Evacuation Zones map.

EARLIER (Sept. 10, 2020) -- Clackamas County establishes curfew during wildfire crisis; curfew effective immediately between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.

In response to the wildfire state of emergency, Clackamas County is enacting a curfew, effective immediately.

Today (Thursday, Sept. 10), in the interest of public safety, the Clackamas County Board of Commissioners has enacted a curfew in all areas of Clackamas County. 

This follows the BCC's Sept. 8 declaration of a state of emergency and this week's Level 3 evacuations covering much of Clackamas County.

The curfew covers all areas of Clackamas County. 

From 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. starting tonight (Sept. 10), no persons other than those working in life- and property-saving activities (or civilian employees at night-shift jobs) may be upon the streets or public places. The curfew does not apply to first responders and community members working to relocate during the wildfire evacuations.

In addition to enforcing the curfew, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office will step up deputy patrols in Level 3 areas of the county where an evacuation order is in place. 

In addition, residents are urged to report any suspicious activity to the Sheriff's Office by calling 911 (as appropriate) or the Sheriff's Non-Emergency Line at 503-655-8211. Tips on suspected criminal activity can also be submitted to the Sheriff's Office Tip Line at 503-723-4949 or https://www.clackamas.us/sheriff/tip .

“We know this is a stressful time for county residents, and we understand people’s concerns about possible increased criminal activity in evacuated areas” said Sheriff Craig Roberts

“We are stepping up our presence in response to the fires, and appreciate everyone's patience as we work together,” added Sheriff Roberts. “The curfew allows us to focus our patrol and evacuation efforts during this unprecedented wildfire crisis.  I urge people to stay out of Level 3 evacuation zones -- for their own safety and the safety of others."
