Now that we are in the heat of the fire season, the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office wants to remind you not to think a fast moving wildfire can't happen here this summer. The long winter and mostly mild summer could have some people lulled into a false sense of security. Scott Shelton is with Deschutes County Search and Rescue and plays a role in fire evacuations.   “You know Central Oregon, it’s an ever changing climate here; things happen very quickly to us. And many times I think we become complacent. But things change very quickly around here; we are in an area that has a history of wildfire and as we expand the urban interface has changed a great deal. So if we keep that in mind it will help us prepare; it will help them prepare. In the event of a fire you need to be prepared by having an emergency kit: keepsakes, medications and important records all easy to get to quickly. And if you have large animals you may need to have a special emergency evacuation plan in place.
