Wildfire Preparations

 

***Due to drought conditions in Central Oregon the 2018 fire season could be early and long. We are encouraging everyone to prepare their properties while outdoor debris burning is allowed.

Preparation Tips:

  • Make sure your property address signs are easily readable.

  • Make sure access roads are clear for fire apparatus.

  • Identify and mark any water supply locations on your property that firefighters could use in case of fire.

  • Defensible space- create 30 to 100 feet of defensible space around structures that will help you and firefighters defend your home in case a fire moves through.

  • Clear area underneath large trees
  • Clear combustibles at least 10 feet around propane tanks
  • Plan Prep Go- familiarize you and your family with the Plan Prep Go plan.  Evacuation-Guide
