EXECUTIVE ORDER NO. 11 - 07

INVOCATION OF EMERGENCY CONFLAGRATION ACT FOR THE NORTH RIVER ROAD FIRE IN JACKSON COUNTY

Pursuant to my authority as Governor of the State of Oregon, I find that:

A fire known as the “North River Road Fire” is burning in Jackson County, near the City of Rogue River, Oregon.

The resources necessary for protecting life and property from the North River Road Fire are beyond local capabilities. Assistance with life, safety, and structural fire protection was requested by the Josephine & Jackson County Fire Defense Chief. The State Fire Marshal concurs with that request.

In accordance with ORS 476.510 through 476.610, I have determined that a threat to life, safety, and property exists due to the North River Road Fire in Jackson County and the threat exceeds the firefighting capabilities of local firefighting personnel and equipment. Accordingly, I have invoked the Emergency Conflagration Act.

These findings were made at 8:18 p.m. on August 18, 2011, and I now confirm them with this Executive Order.

NOW THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY DIRECTED AND ORDERED:

1. The Oregon State Police and the Office of State Fire Marshal shall mobilize fire resources statewide and coordinate with all appropriate Fire Defense Chiefs for the use of personnel and equipment in accordance with the Emergency Conflagration Act to suppress and contain this fire.

2. This emergency is declared only for the North River Road Fire in Jackson County.

3. This order was made by verbal proclamation at 8:18 p.m. the 18th day of August, 2011.

Done at Silverton, Oregon this 22nd day of August, 2011.
