Oregon Governor Kitzhaber wants to raise awareness of wildfire prevention, efforts going on across the state to minimize impacts from the busy fire season, and remind Oregonians and visitors to practice basic fire safety while visiting Oregon's scenic areas. "It's everyone's responsibility to prevent human-caused wildfires," said Governor Kitzhaber. "With thunderstorms sparking lightning-caused fires across the state, fire crews are busy. We all need to do our part to make sure we're not diverting those crews with human-caused fires that are easily preventable by using safe practices."
