To report a fire or other emergency, call 911. When you call 911, be prepared to tell the dispatcher who you are, where the fire is located, and how to contact you. Do not hang up until the dispatcher asks you to. For more information about emergency reporting, see the Jackson County Emergency Communications of Southern Oregon website.
To ensure you'll know about an emergency in your neighborhood, sign up for Citizen Alert. This notification system helps local officials to provide you with critical information quickly in a variety of situations, including fire, flood, evacuations and other emergencies.
