News Releases
HWY 99E Fire - 07/15/21

Regarding the fire from July 14, 2021, located under the powerlines off of Highway 99E, it is normal to continue to see hot spots in the burnt / blackened area even after the fire is out. Smoke will continue to be seen as well. Clackamas Fire District is closely monitoring the area and has crews on scene ready to respond. Please do not call 9-1-1 to report hot spots or smoke from the blackened area. Any hot spots from outside the blackened area should be reported immediately to 9-1-1.

Thank you to our citizens for your tremendous support toward our firefighters!

Clackamas County Fireworks Ban Response - 07/01/21

The Clackamas County Board of Commissioners passed a Resolution to ban all fireworks within the unincorporated areas of Clackamas County. The ban is in effect until July 10, 2021. The Clackamas County Sheriff can issue a $500 fine for setting off legal fireworks and $2,500 for illegal fireworks during the period of the firework ban.

This does not apply to cities, so each city would individually have to pass their own ban on the use of fireworks. Unfortunately, Fire Districts do not have the authority or the enforcement on this matter. Canby Fire District is strongly urging people not to purchase or use any fireworks or do any open burning of any kind due to the high risk for fire danger.

For those people who have purchased fireworks that wish to discard them, you can drop them off at the Canby Fire District and 221 South Pine Street for safe disposal.

If you decide to set off fireworks, please keep them away from combustibles of any kind, keep a water source available and an extinguisher nearby, maintain constant adult supervision, and keep all access ways to the property open for emergency equipment and personnel in case of an emergency.

Do not use the 9-1-1 line to report the use of fireworks. The 911 line is for emergencies only. Calling the 911 line for non-emergency issues will delay call takers from being able to answer in a timely manner for emergencies that require immediate attention. Please only call 9-1-1 if you are experiencing an in-progress emergency that threatens life or is actively damaging your personal property.

The non-emergency line to report fireworks, burning, or other related issues is 503-655-8211. Due to the high number of emergency calls on or near the 4th of July, callers to these lines may experience significantly delayed response times.

Respectfully,

James X. Davis, Fire Chief

Canby Fire District
