Multiple swift water rescues on the N. Santiam!!!



In the last 48 hrs the Jefferson Fire District Swift Water Rescue team has pulled 16 people from the river between Greens Bridge and the Jefferson Boat ramp. Multiple people have been transported to the hospital and some narrowly escaped death. In addition to our team there has also been a private citizen in a boat pulling a tremendous amount of people out of the water as well. We are asking that ALL rafters and people using inflatables avoid floating the river at this time. The water is extremely dangerous and not suitable for floating. We'd also like to thank Scio Fire District, Linn County Sheriffs Office, Marion County Sheriffs, Albany Medic and Salem Water Rescue teams for their assistance on a VERY busy couple of days!
