The Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District provides fire suppression, emergency medical service and public education to approximately 5,000 full time residents and untold thousands of visitors to the Oregon Coast each year. We respond to an average of 600 calls for service each year from six stations located in Pacific City (Station 82), Beaver Station 83), Neskowin (Station 84), Sandlake (Station 85), Blaine (Station 86) and Hebo (Station 87). Although our district boundaries cover approximately 125 square miles, we respond to incidents in unprotected areas covering over 200 square miles including Oregon Department of Forestry land and the US Forest lands.

 BURN BAN  AUGUST 19, 2015   

                              ALL TILLAMOOK COUNTY PARK CAMPGROUNDS AND PROPERTIES  
Because of the significant fire activity across the State of Oregon, the Board of County Commissioners acting in concert with other public agencies, are banning all campfires and open flames in properties owned and managed by the Tillamook County Parks Department.  This restriction will go into effect August 19, 2015.  
This ban includes but is not limited to fire pits, tiki torches, and candles.  The use of propane stoves and/or charcoal briquettes for cooking may be allowed, but are subject to local fire restrictions. 
This ban will remain in effect for at least one week and will be re-evaluated based on fire status, weather, and guidance from state and local fire officials.   
The purpose of this restriction is to avoid any accidental fire starts on Tillamook County Park property.  While not all locations may be currently under local fire restrictions, most communities have provided resources to assist State and Federal fire-fighting efforts.  An unintentional fire in a Tillamook County Park site would add a burden on those already taxed resources.  
Parks staff will be working with our patrons and visitors to help educate them on the  risk and reason for such a change at this time.   
The Board of Commissioners hereby bans all campfires and open flames in properties owned and managed by the Tillamook County Parks Department  www.co.tillamook.or.us/gov/parks/
