Oregonians live in a fire-prone environment, but there are effective practices for minimizing impacts of fire in your neighborhood. Are you and your community prepared for wildfire? Do you want to know how you can give your home and property the best chance to survive wildfire? By taking action now, you can reduce the chance that your home will burn during a wildfire.

To learn more, attend this program in any of four locations. The sessions will be led by a team of OSU Extension Forestry and Oregon Department of Forestry instructors at each location. Learn how a fire professional views your home and property, and the steps you can take to reduce risk. Presentation, discussion, and reference material will cover:

  • How to create defensible space around homes and buildings.
  • Thinning, pruning, and groundcover management practices to reduce fire hazards in your landscape and woodland.
  • Sources of assistance for assessing your risk, planning and implementing fuels reduction and other treatments to reduce hazards.
