A Message from Jackson County Fire District 5’s

Board of Directors to Our Community​

Like many of you, we are extraordinarily grateful for the tireless work our firefighters and

partner agencies continue to do for all of our district’s patrons, including those living in

Phoenix, Talent, rural Jackson County, Ashland, and our neighbors affected by the Obenchain

and other fires. Under the leadership of our Chief Hanley, our team has come together with

other agencies in support of residents and business owners in this horrific time.

Our fire district will continue to work together with all our first responders to ensure your

safety and minimize the loss of lives and property to the greatest extent possible. Many of our

staff have experienced loss from these fires, so we are deeply empathetic to our citizens’

needs. Rest assured that we are marshaling all the resources available to assist residents of our

District and the neighboring communities.

For those experiencing unimaginable loss, please know that you are not alone. Please also know

that, working together, we can and will replenish and rebuild our communities.
