Firefighting teams are stretched thin across multiple sites and are fighting fires around the clock

Oregon: Lightning strikes have started wildfires in multiple locations from Crater Lake to the Siskiyou Mountains. Governor Kate Brown has declared a statewide wildfire emergency. Fortunately, none of the fires have yet blown up into large scale thousand acre burns, but with temperatures expected to remain in the high 90s for the next week, the fires may grow and there are number of areas with evacuation warnings pending.

Our team in Oregon responded to a call for emergency power by quickly delivering a number of 150kVA generators to the fire camps. These machines are helping power lighting and the cooking facilities that serve the firefighters. The firefighting teams are stretched thin across multiple sites and are fighting fires around the clock. With high temperatures, low humidity and wind expected to continue through the week, it’s difficult to estimate how long they might be fighting these blazes. Red-D-Arc is proud to do our part in supporting these hard working men and women in their valiant efforts to control the fires.
