News Release
Level 3 Dropped to Level 2 for Some Tiller Residents - 09/19/21

TILLER, Ore. - After consultation with the Devils Knob Fire Managers, the Sheriff's Office is announcing changes to evacuation orders previously issued for some homeowners in Tiller.

Based on current weather conditions and fire activity, the following homes are now under a Level 2 “BE SET” evacuation advisory: 

  • All homes on Ash Valley Road
  • All homes on South Umpqua Road starting at Dumont Creek Campground to the 28000 block of South Umpqua Road.

These homes are no longer under the previously issued Level 3 “GO!” order. 

Level 2 “BE SET” means: You must prepare to leave at a moments notice. This level indicates there is significant danger to your area, and residents should either voluntarily relocate to a shelter or with family/friends outside of the affected area, or if choosing to remain, to be ready to evacuate at a moments notice. Residents MAY have time to gather necessary items, but doing so is at their own risk. THIS MAY BE THE ONLY NOTICE YOU RECEIVE. Emergency services cannot guarantee that they will be able to notify you if conditions rapidly deteriorate.

Residents can opt in to receive emergency alerts based on their address by registering at www.dcso.com/alerts.
