Lewis County Burn Restrictions Expanded

- Total Burn Ban in Effect With the continued dry weather, the Lewis County Board of County Commissioners and Lewis County Fire Marshal will expand the burn restrictions for all of unincorporated Lewis County, Washington, effective 12:01 A.M., July 10, 2021.

 This modification and upgrade will prohibit all outdoor burning which includes recreational fires. Until modified by the Lewis County Board of County Commissioners or the Lewis County Fire Marshal, only liquid gas or propane camp stoves that do not use solid briquettes and have on/off controls are permitted. This decision was made due to the continued, and in some parts of unincorporated Lewis County, worsening dry season conditions. The Lewis County Fire Marshal, in coordination with the Chiefs of local fire districts strongly urge all county residents and property owners to be attentive to the conditions of their properties through proactive fire prevention measures.

 While the Board of County Commissioners and the Fire Marshal recognize that this decision may alter recreational plans, the decision to expand the burn restriction to a total burn ban reflects the county’s priority of public safety and the protection of personnel, as well as property. 

The open burning restrictions, including this modification to put in place a total burn ban, will remain in effect until such discontinuance is modified or rescinded by the Board of County Commissioners. A public announcement of the lifting of the restrictions and ban will be released to the public at that time. For further information concerning outdoor burning and/or the restrictions being imposed, please contact Doyle Sanford, Lewis County Fire Marshal, at (360)740-2696. The Fire Marshal’s office is in the Lewis County Public Services building, located at 2025 NE Kresky Avenue, Chehalis, Washington.

City of Vader Earns Risk Management Safety Award

At the October 13, 2020, RMSA Annual Meeting, RMSA recognized the risk management efforts of its members that contributed to an improvement in their liability loss experience over the past year, via four different award categories. The awards acknowledge the hard work and dedication RMSA’s members put into proactively managing their risks and keeping their communities safe.  

AWC RMSA Program Manager Harlan Stientjes stated that “the daily operations of running a municipal entity are complex, but actively managing risks helps keep municipalities running effectively, efficiently, and promotes stronger, more resilient communities. AWC RMSA commends City of Vader for its dedication to good risk management practices by recognizing it as one of this year’s Safety Award winners.”

RMSA members share in the costs of coverage and losses. The efforts of any member in preventing or reducing risk can affect the cost of risk for all members. Risk reduction and proactive risk management efforts benefit the membership as a whole by keeping loss experience low, positively impacting costs, and attracting more favorable insuring partners. 

The AWC Risk Management Service Agency (RMSA) is a municipal risk pool protecting the employees, assets, and officials of 102 of Washington’s cities, towns, and special purpose districts from property and liability risks and cost. RMSA strives to solve problems before they happen and protect its members’ futures when they do. https://wacities.org/
