Current Information

Extreme fire conditions across much of Southern Oregon have resulted in the US National Weather Service issuing a Red Flag Warning for extreme fire danger through the afternoon of Sept. 9 and from 2-8 p.m. Sept. 10. A Red Flag Warning means the area is experiencing critical weather conditions that are ideal for wildfire, including high temperatures, strong winds and minimum humidity values. Any spark could become a wildfire under Red Flag conditions.

Evacuation Locations

  • All evacuees are being directed to the Jackson County Expo



Report Yourself Safe and Well

The Red Cross also offers the Safe and Well website. It allows people to list their own status and allows friends and family to search for messages from their loved ones. The Safe and Well website is a free public reunification tool that allows individuals and organizations to register and post messages to indicate that they are safe, or to search for loved ones. The site is always available and open to the public and available in Spanish. Registrations and searches can be done directly on the website.

Registrations can also be completed by texting SAFE to 78876. Messages exist in both Spanish and English. To speak with someone at the American Red Cross concerning a missing friend or relative, please contact 1-800 Red Cross. You can also call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) to be connected with your local chapter.
