Fire district offers safety inspections

Home should be a safe place, but there are hazards that can lead to accidents — hazards we might not even be aware of.

The Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire District is offering residents a one-on-one review and consultation at their homes about maximizing safety concerning fire and fall risks.

Services are conducted by a team of trained volunteers. The District’s concern comes from experience and knowledge that many citizens within the community are at a higher risk of needing emergency medical or fire services. These risks can be reduced by making simple changes to remove hazards. Crews may make suggestions to add supplemental aids to further reduce the chances of accidents within and around the home.

The Fire District’s goal is to keep citizens safe, healthy, and living independently in their home.

To schedule a personal home safety inspection, visit and schedule under “Services and Programs,” or call the Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire District at 541-549-0771 and someone from the team will contact you.
