  • Oregon needs YOUR help preventing wildfires

    This is a photo of mop-up activiites on the White River Fire.Fire season started early this year and fire danger throughout most of the state is extreme. There were about 20,000 lightning strikes from the most recent lightning storm, starting several of the large fires that are now burning from the Cascades to central and eastern Oregon. However, there has also been a significant increase in human-caused wildfires, a serious concern as firefighters are busy responding to new fires and fire teams continue to be assigned to manage the largest of the fires now burning. Roads and other infrastructure, recreation areas, and air quality are all being affected, as are the very lives of Oregonians, those who have either already lost their homes or continue to face that risk. As Governor Kitzhaber recently stated,  "This crisis is a reminder that each of us has a responsibility to our state to prevent new wildfires."  Find out what you can do.
