Disaster Declaration From Nez Perce County

Nez Perce County Fire

Lewiston, ID – Nez Perce County, through its Office of Emergency Management and in partnership with the City of Lewiston, and regional public safety agencies, is actively monitoring the several large fires in our region.

The Nez Perce County Board of Commissioners Acting Chairman Douglas A. Zenner has issued a Disaster Declaration for Nez Perce County.  

Areas of the County affected by the wildfires are being asked to prepare for a possible evacuation depending on fire behavior.  To help ensure the safety of those working and supporting the fire operations we ask the public to avoid unnecessary travel or ‘sightseeing’ in these areas.  We also remind the public; DO NOT FLY unmanned aerial systems (UAS, Drones) while we have wildland fires in our region.
