Downed trees and lines

Due to the winter weather, Dispatch is currently receiving a high volume of calls regarding downed trees and power lines all over the county.  Please be patient and only dial 911 if you have an emergency.  The non-emergency dispatch line is 503-325-4411.

If you have a low hanging line in your area, please call your local power company so they can add it to their repair list.  Pacific Power outage line is 1-877-508-5088.  Western Oregon Electric outage line is 1-800-777-1276.  Charter/Spectrum outage line is 1-833-267-6094.
