PRESS RELEASE

The South Lane County Fire and Rescue Board of Directors is currently reviewing an incident of alleged offensive Facebook posts by our Fire Chief.  We take this matter very seriously.

We take great pride in the public’s trust in our organization and work hard every day to continuously earn that trust.  We are here to compassionately and professionally serve all South Lane County Fire District residents.  

It is not District practice to provide detailed comments on ongoing personnel matters.  Presently, the Fire Chief has been placed on non-disciplinary administrative leave.  The Acting Fire Chief is Joe Raade. 

  Emails to the District regarding this matter have been shared with the Board.  If you wish to provide written comments, our email address is  and our mailing address is SLCF&R Administration and Headquarters, 233 Harrison Ave Cottage Grove, OR 97424  Written comments are the most effective way to communicate with the District at this time because we need to keep our phone lines available for emergencies and regular District business. 

The Board is scheduling another Board meeting to address this issue on June 18, 2020 at 7:00 PM.  At that time, the Board will enter into an Executive Session under ORS 192.660(2)(b) to discuss the potential discipline of a public officer.  We will post the meeting notice and agenda at least 72 hours prior to the meeting.  

Thank you,

South Lane County Fire and Rescue
