Lincoln County Readies For Wildfire Season


The Lincoln County Fire Defense Board, Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and Lincoln County Public Health are partnering together to prepare our community members, business owners and visitors on our local wildfire threat conditions, public safety evacuation response procedures and efforts individuals can take to be ready for wildfire season. 11 Wildfire Readiness events are scheduled through June and July across all communities of Lincoln County. The presentations will incorporate specific topics to assist in the planning, mitigation, response and recovery from wildfire events for both our rural and city neighborhood areas.


The presentation will include topics such as:

Wildfire history and seasonal fire conditionsHow to prepare your home, property, & familyEvacuation Levels (Get Ready, Be Set, Go Now)What to expect if you receive an evacuation orderAssistance after you evacuateHow to minimize health effects of smoky conditionsPick up your HELP/OK sign
