Anvil Fire near Port Orford is getting serious


Elk river evacuation and Sixes on alert for bugging out



Along with this day old article the Langlois lions Club just got an alert that we may need to provide beds for folk needing shelter from Elk River etc. Man I thought we got away with no big fires this year but it's here again.

Stay safe and bug out if you get told. I worked for Coos Forest Patrol for a number of years and this is tough country and no rain in sight. Gorse fires are a bitch but trying to contain fires in that area is a giant nightmare.  We will update if the Langlois Lions Club is open for displaced folk. At this point they just warned us to get ready if things get bad.  Hope they don't.


Langlois is here to help as we can so we'll see how it goes.  Good luck and hope for some good rain! Read more about Anvil Fire near Port Orford is getting serious

The Revenue Cutter Service was established on August 4th, 1790. The Cape Blanco Heritage Society usually celebrates the birth date of the organization on the 1st Sunday in August. The Cutter Service saw action during the Civil War and was instrumental in the development of Alaska. This branch of service was active in environmental protection dating back to the 1822 Timber Act that tasked them with protecting government timber from poachers. In 1915 the Revenue Cutter Service and Lifesaving Service were merged into the U.S. Coast Guard as we know it today.
Visit our Museum at the Port Orford Heads before or during the concert and learn more about the history of this interesting area and enjoy the beautiful hiking trails with the wonderful ocean views. The Port Orford Heads State Park is on the ocean side of Highway 101. Turn West on 9th Street in Port Orford, near Milepost 301, and then follow the road up the hill to where the road ends.
