Join the Office of State Fire Marshal for a Firewise USA(R) Webinar (Photo) - 04/20/22

SALEM, Ore. – The Office of State Fire Marshal is hosting Jenna Trentadue from ODF to talk about the Firewise USA® Program. Jenna will present information on how Oregonians can help prepare themselves and their community by participating in the Firewise USA® program. These educational webinars are designed to provide Oregonians and local community partners with tools to prepare themselves and their properties for wildfire.  

The national Firewise USA®'s recognition program provides a collaborative framework to help neighbors in a geographic area get organized, find direction, and take action to increase the ignition resistance of their homes and community and reduce wildfire risks at the local level. This presentation will be discussing the current drought outlook, stats from previous years, the Firewise USA® program, requirements, exploring types of work that can be done, and sharing some visuals on example mitigation work. 

More webinars will be scheduled over the coming months. In addition, the OSFM will be hosting discussions on various topics, including the importance of creating defensible space, wildfire prevention tips, and evacuation readiness.
