Marion County Emergency ManagementEmergency Rescue Service in Salem, Oregon
Thanks NWS Portland for this timely reminder!
While it will be warm this week, which will make area rivers inviting, please remember that many rivers are still cold enough to produce cold water shock & hypothermia. Remember to wear a life jacket if you plan on playing on or in the water this week.
If you receive a phone call from someone saying they are from the Marion County Sheriff's Office and the number that shows up is 503-850-7014, it is a scam. They may be using other Sheriff's Office names and addresses as well. Marion County will not call and leave a message telling you to send money.
As a reminder, please do not comply or give out any personal information if you were to receive this call. Should you find yourself subject to this scam, please contact our Non-Emergency dispatch line at (503)588-5032.
