In Oregon, May is designated as Wildfire Awareness Month. The Oregon State Fire Marshal (OSFM) and its partners are engaged in a month-long campaign to encourage, empower, and inform Oregonians to help prevent and prepare for wildfire.
There are many things Oregonians can do to be prepared for wildfire. One of which is creating defensible space. The OSFM has several resources to help Oregonians create and maintain defensible space. These simple actions could make all the difference in the event of a wildfire.
