Newport Fire Dept.

From Newport Fire Chief Rob Murphy:

Beginning Monday, October 23, our administrative offices will be back at our Main Fire Station located at 245 NW 10th Street, just west of the Catholic Church. Our phone number will remain the same, (541) 265-9461. Our office hours will continue to be 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Friday. Our operational crews and our Fire Prevention Bureau will be moving back into our facility over the next two weeks.

Our seismic retrofit construction project is just about completed. The City of Newport received a seismic retrofit grant from the State of Oregon Infrastructure Finance Authority in the amount of $1.4 Million Dollars to structurally upgrade the Main Fire Station located at 245 NW 10th Street for increased earthquake resistance. The Fire Station was constructed in 1981 before the era of modern building codes which requires seismic bracing. The project includes new foundation supports around the perimeter of the building, and bracing for wall panels and roof supports. The extent of the construction project necessitated our temporary relocation.

Along with needed safety and structural improvements, the fire station also received new paint, new flooring and lighting, and new furniture. We are also upgrading our training room to improve to better train our firefighters and EMTs.

Starting on Monday, October 23, people wishing to obtain a new burn permit will be able to pick one up at our Main Fire Station on NW 10th Street during normal business hours and from 10 am to 2 pm on Saturdays. Please note burn permits will not be available at the Agate Beach Fire Station, located at 225 NE 73rd Street, after Friday, October 20. Those wishing to activate a current permit will still be able to call the Fire Department phone number (541-265-9461) any time.

We thank the public for their patience and flexibility. We will continue to provide friendly, professional service in a timely manner in our upgraded and safer facility. We will be holding an open house in mid-November to show the public our new facility. The date and time will be announced in a future press release, and on our website. If you have any questions feel free to contact us by telephone or visit our website at: http://newportoregon.gov/dept/nfd/.

Dancing with the Coastal Stars Nov. 3, Newport Performing Arts Center

Dancing with the Coastal Stars

Stethoscopes will be replaced by fancy footwork when physicians Jennifer Wrazen and Sean Rash take the stage to perform a foxtrot at Dancing with the Coastal Stars on Nov. 3, 2017. The fundraiser for Samaritan House Family Shelter will feature eight couples competing for bragging rights, including the dancing doctors.

Jennifer was born and raised in Buffalo, New York and completed her pediatric residency in Portland, Oregon, where she met her fellow pediatrician and future husband while both were working at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. Sean was born and raised in Lakewood, Washington. The couple moved to the Newport area 18 years ago, and both have been practicing pediatric medicine while raising three sons. The two have no formal dance training and little experience, but coach Vickie Steen says the audience may well be surprised at how well they dance together.

“Jennifer and Sean have put many hours into learning to dance,” Steen said, noting the extra time constraints presented by their work as doctors and their busy family life. “I am coaching them, but they do the work,” she added, crediting a combination of good chemistry, a choreography that works for them, and their sense of humor as the ingredients for their success. Steen is one of six volunteer coaches guiding a team on the way to the Newport Performing Arts Center stage. Those in the central coast theater community will know Steen from her work with the Porthole Players as director, choreographer, actor, dancer and producer. For this event, it is her dance abilities that are in demand. At the ripe age of four and a half, I decided to be a dancer and the rest is history,” she explains. Now she’s passing those talents on to the event’s dancing doctors.

Jennifer and Sean say they agreed to take up the challenge strictly in support of Samaritan House. “We know how important Samaritan House is to our community and its most vulnerable families,” they replied when asked about their participation.
Each team is also challenged to raise funds for Samaritan House as part of a “people’s choice” competition. Team Wrazen/Rash enlisted Nana’s Irish Pub, who will show its support by donating proceeds of the day’s earnings on Thursday, October 26, to Samaritan House in honor of Wrazen and Rash. Donations may also be made in their name at the Samaritan House website.

Tickets for Dancing with the Coastal Stars are on sale at the PAC Box Office or online at coastarts.org. For more information about Samaritan House, visit SamFamShelter.org.

Each visitor gets a ticket for a door prize. Door prizes will be drawn every 15 minutes beginning at 1:30 pm (Grange Members and immediate household members not eligible).

The Siletz Valley Grange supports local non-profits and youth by providing the facility free of charge. We collect food for Food Share, hold bi-monthly Bingo, host the Annual Community Garage Sale, Annual St Paddies Dinner and Silent Auction, Annual Holiday Bazaar as well as Farmers Markets and Swap Meets. The building rents out for weddings, memorial services, baby showers, birthday parties, concerts, school fundraisers, etc. And we rent out tables and chairs.
