Home Protection and Fuels Reduction Workshop

February 18 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

| $15.00

OSU Extension offers this workshop for woodland owners and others living in or near woodland areas. It focuses on how to assess fire risk around rural homes and in forest/landscape areas with wildfire hazards, with the goal of helping you prepare for the next fire season.

Learn how to:

  • Evaluate and treat fuel hazards to create defensible space according to “Home Ignition Zone Recommendations.”
  • Evaluate fuel loads, fire hazards, and principles of fire-resistant forests.
  • Evaluate high risk situations.

This workshop is in conjunction with the final session of the Citizen Fire Academy, a volunteer training program to help citizens become leaders in wildfire preparedness.

Registration is required by Feb. 15 to Jean Bremer, jean.bremer@oregonstate.edu or 503.655.8631.
