Sisters Country Fire Chiefs Re-Open Recreational Burning

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

September 24, 2020

Contact: Roger Johnson, Fire Chief 541-549-0771

 

The Sisters-Camp Sherman and Cloverdale Fire Districts have announced that recreational burning will re-open on 9-25-2020 in all areas within the Sisters-Camp Sherman and Cloverdale Fire Districts. This does not include forest service land or campgrounds, including the Tract cabins in Camp Sherman. Earlier this month several local fire agencies banned all burning including recreational fires due to red flag warnings and extreme predicted fire behavior in the area.

 

Recreational fires include those used for pleasure, religious, ceremonial, cooking, warmth or similar purposes and does not include yard debris burning within the Sisters-Camp Sherman and Cloverdale Fire Districts. Open yard debris burning typically opens around November 1 each year.

 

Residents are strongly encouraged to contact their local fire protection agencies for additional burning information and regulations. Sisters-Camp Sherman and Cloverdale fire departments will continue to monitor weather and fuel moisture conditions in their district and may make modifications on a day-to-day basis.  Please call your local fire agency for more information.
