Fire Safe Oregon – OSU Wildfire Wednesday Webinars
Are you ready for the next wildfire season? Last summer’s wildfire events impacted most Oregonians and we learned that EVERYONE living in Oregon should be prepared for a wildfire emergency. Every community is different though, and it can be difficult to navigate all of the resources.
On March 17, OSU Forestry & Natural Resources Extension along with state and local agencies and community partners, will launch Wildfire Wednesday’s lunch and learn, “Fire Aware. Fire Prepared.” program. This statewide campaign will help Oregonians prepare for the reality of wildfire through greater awareness and actions.
Wildfire Wednesday Webinars Sessions (12:00-1:00pm PST):
March 17: It takes a village!
