Statewide Freeze Announced

begins November 18, 2020

Due to the recent spike in coronavirus infections which has reached record high positivity rates and hospitalizations in November, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown announced on Friday there will be a statewide two-week “freeze” starting Nov. 18 through Dec. 2. This action aims to limit group activities and slow the spread of COVID-19. If people do not abide by the governor’s latest mandates, which restricts social gatherings to six people, they could face a citation, fine, or even arrest.

In accordance with these most recent mandates, the Aurora Fire District is maintaining compliance by not allowing anyone other than staff to enter the station; therefore, upcoming Board meetings will continue to be held virtually via Google meet, while allowing public access via telephone. Please refer to the Board of Directors Meetings on the 'About us' page for more information. 

Additional information regarding Covid-19 updates can be found by clicking on the photo or button below. 


Come by the Fire Station in  Aurora or the Station in Donald with your masks on and get some goodies on Saturday, October 31st from 5 - 7:30pm!

The Firefighters will be following the CDC Guidelines, having thoroughly sanitized, will be wearing masks, gloves, and keeping a safe distance. You can find us set up outside, so come on by!
