Sandy Police warn against imposters spreading false evacuation info
The Sandy Police Department is warning people not to be fooled by false information or people coming to their door posing as police or fire personnel and telling them to evacuate.
People have reportedly been calling CCOM, the dispatch service for Clackamas County, saying police and fire are going door-to-door to evacuate the citizens of Sandy. Sandy Police say this is untrue.
"Please be advised that citizens within the city limits of Sandy are not under evacuation orders," the department stated for clarity. "The city of Sandy is still at Level 1 status. The fire remains a few miles southeast of the city of Estacada. City and county officials are regularly updating their social media sites and clackamas.us/wildfires. Please go to official sources for your information."
Law enforcement ask that if you're within a Level 1 or 2 area and someone comes to your door telling you to evacuate, contact law enforcement at the non-emergency dispatch number, 503-655-8211.
