The Central Oregon Intergovernmental Council (COIC) is offering its Dial-A-Ride service in Redmond to people displaced by wildfires.  This free service is available from 5:30 AM to 7:00 PM  Monday through Friday.  Reservations can be made from 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM Monday through Friday by calling (541) 385-8680.  The service boundary includes the greater Redmond area.  Due to COVID-19, riders are required to wear a face covering while on board the shuttle.

“As a community that has benefited from the assistance of others, we welcome those in need from across Oregon. We are honored to offer free transportation services, removing a barrier for many trying to meet their basic daily needs.” expressed COIC Executive Director, Tammy Baney.


Stay informed and stay safe with information from the Oregon state government.  The website https://wildfire.oregon.gov, is a hub for accessing Oregon Wildfire Resources.  It has translation options for multiple languages.  In addition to the latest news, you’ll find how to sign up for emergency alerts, fire maps, the air quality index, road conditions and more.  There are links to the Red Cross Safe & Well Status to list yourself safe OR search the registry to check on the status of loved ones.
