PER CURIAM

Reversed.

PER CURIAM

Appellant seeks reversal of an order committing him as a mentally ill person for a period not to exceed 180 days. ORS 426.130. He contends that the trial court erred in concluding that, as a result of a mental disorder, he is dangerous to himself, dangerous to others, and unable to provide for his basic needs. See ORS 426.005(1). The state concedes that the record does not contain legally sufficient evidence to support the involuntary commitment and that the order should be reversed. We agree, accept the state's concession, and reverse.

Reversed.
