A burn ban is now in effect in Washington County.
Despite the late start to a hot summer, all outdoor burning is now prohibited until further notice and fire season is officially underway.
Outdoor cooking using a gas grill or solid fuel barbecue is exempt. Small recreational or warming fires are also exempt. Please keep a bucket and shovel nearby for these.
We urge you to use caution and stay safe. Most wildfires are human caused so prevention is key.
We have compiled a list of resources to help during this storm and other weather related events. Links to information about road closures, PGE outages, sandbag sites, and other useful information. Bookmark this page for future use and share it with your neighbors.
To help district residents keep their chimneys and/or stovepipes clean and free of debris, Gaston Fire is providing a Chimney Brush Lending Program. Stop by the station to pick up a chimney brush. They can be checked out for 24 hours, and must be returned within this time. Contact Us at the station if you have any questions.
The Gaston Rural Fire District holds its monthly Board Meeting on the second Thursday of each month at 6:00 pm at the fire station, 102 East Main Street. These meetings are open to the public with agendas being posted the preceding Monday at the station.
