News Release
9/11/20 6:00PM Update for Sandy - 09/11/20

Good Evening. As our partners at the Wilsonville Police Department put it: “With less wind, cooler temperatures, and additional resources, the mood in the command center is more optimistic.” Sandy and surrounding areas remain at the same level for evacuation purposes and there is no current information to suggest that will change overnight. Sandy Police Officers remain on patrol 24 hours a day. Remember that the County curfew begins tonight at 10 PM. For reference, a copy of the order is included in this post. 


Sandy Police Chief Ernie Roberts has this to say: “I’m grateful to our Sandy Police Officers and our community members, who are working hard to support our community during this historic event. I encourage everyone to be patient with each other and authorities as we work together through this challenging time. Please be safe.”


Please continue to monitor for up to date evacuation information and sign up for public alerts: 


Air quality remains hazardous in Sandy. You are encouraged to stay indoors as much as possible.


SAM buses to Gresham remain on normal schedules and dial-a-ride is available for life sustaining or evacuation transportation (call 503-668-3466). All other SAM services are suspended.


The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office Twitter page is sharing helpful information and links to keep you informed about the county-wide fire response: In case you missed it, Clackamas County broadcast an update at 3:00PM, check their Facebook page to catch a replay.


If you are experiencing a high level of anxiety and need help, consider contacting the Clackamas County Crisis Line at (503)655-8585.
