Effective at 7:00 am on May 9th, 2019, all Washington County Fire Departments will enact a ban on outdoor burning. Yamhill County is also under a burn ban.
This is due to increasingly dry conditions, out of control burn piles already causing brush fires in our area, and no immediate forecast for substantial rainfall. This means that all agricultural, yard debris, and logging slash burning is prohibited until further notice.
Small, contained, recreational camp type fires are still allowed. If you do have a backyard campfire, you must have a garden hose or water source ready at all times.
If you have any questions, feel free to call the station at (503) 985-7575
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.
