ECLIPSE COINCIDES WITH PEAK OF FIRE SEASON

It's one of the most anticipated events in Oregon history. The 2017 Great American Solar Eclipse's path of totality begins at the beach near Lincoln City and continues across the state through Salem, Madras, John Day and Ontario. An estimated one-million visitors will join Oregonians Monday, August 21 to view the celestial event. With the eclipse taking place during the peak of wildfire season, please keep fire prevention a top priority. Remember that idling cars over dry grass and careless acts with smoking, campfires, fireworks and target shooting can easily spark a wildfire. Only You Can Prevent Wildfires!
