Reducing Fire Hazard

Wildfires occur every year in Oregon. Although you can't eliminate every threat of wildfire, you can take steps to make sure your home and forestland survives wildfire in the best condition possible.

  • Do you have an evacuation plan?
  • Does your home utilize fire resistant materials?
  • Have you adequately assessed the fire risk around your home and forestland to help prepare for a forest fire?
  • Have you done any fuel reduction around your home & property?
