High East winds are blowing in smoke from wildfires in Cascade Mountain Range. The current weather pattern has pushed the smokey conditions from the Willamette Valley, Central Oregon and even Washington into our coastal areas. We ask that you do not contact 911 regarding the smokey conditions unless you are calling to report an actual fire. Our Dispatch Centers need to be available for emergency calls. However, if you would like to monitor or see where current fires are located across Oregon and the region you can find that information and air quality information at the links below. This is "live" information and can be checked at anytime.
