Update on Evaluation of Response to Fire Including Emergency Notification

There is no timetable for the investigation to be completed but Dyer says that all applications for the agencies looking to conduct the investigation are due by November 9th. The Chronicle Staff will give updates as this process proceeds.

PHOENIX, Ore. —-  KDRV Jackson County commissioners are looking to hire an agency to conduct investigation into the Almeda Fire.
“This is again, to hopefully improve anything that may have been missed or anything that may, you know, could have been done better. We’re looking for what was done well too, so we can make sure to do that again the next time,” said Jackson County commissioner Rick Dyer.

The county is now looking into hiring an agency to run investigation into what happened during that night of the fire. They aren’t just looking into the Everbridge system but fire response as a whole. It’s something that Dyer says will help the county in the long run.

“We issued an RFP on Monday or a request for proposals. We’re looking for an entity, an agency that can perform this evaluation, this post event evaluation,” Dyer said.

There is no timetable for the investigation to be completed but Dyer says that all applications for the agencies looking to conduct the investigation are due by November 9th.
