City Hall is open Monday through Friday 8:30 am – 4:00 pm
To the residents of Jacksonville, on behalf of the Jacksonville Fire Department I want to thank each of you for helping to keep this past summer fire season one of the best on record for Jacksonville. This shows the responsiveness of our community for the extra sensitivity to the fact that we were faced with one of the worst droughts and concern for wild-fires because of those conditions.
The Oregon Department of Forestry has lowered the Fire Danger Level to High effective September 16, 2015, which affects Jacksonville and the rural areas surrounding Jacksonville. Please pay attention to their existing restrictions. We are not yet out of the woods, and this is not the time to be careless. It was during this time of the year just five years ago in Ashland, when late in the season eleven homes were lost due to a aggressive wildfire.
As Fall is upon us, we have had some rain, the humidity has increased and the temperatures have dropped, but we have not received enough moisture to be careless. We encourage you to be vigilant and pay attention to fire safety.
As part of Fire Prevention Week, the Jacksonville Fire Department will be hosting Open House October 8th at 4:00 pm thru 6:30 pm at the Fire Station at Third and “C” Street. The Jacksonville Firefighters and CERT Team will be sharing points of fire prevention, emergency preparedness, and recruit for Firewise Communities. Hot Dogs and refreshments will be shared. We encourage young and old alike to come join us for this annual observation recognized across the nation on the anniversary of the “Great Chicago Fire” when we can share how you can prevent fires in your home.
