Oregon Forestland-Urban Interface Fire Protection Act (SB360)
General and Contact Information
 
  
   The Forestland-Urban Interface Fire Protection Act, better known as Senate Bill 360, is   
   an unique and effective means of protecting rural properties that are located in fire
   prone areas of our state.
 
   The recommended treatment prescriptions are new, fostered on retaining trees around the
   home, maintaining healthy landscapes, and enhancing curb appeal.  Each home protected by the
   Oregon Department of Forestry received a certification form, which we hope you will fill out
   and return once the fire defense work is complete.  The certification process renews every five
   years, wherein we will send out new forms and treatment information on a five year cycle.
 
   In Central Oregon we have implemented the Oregon Forestland Urban Interface Fire protection
   act in five counties: Deschutes, Crook, Jefferson, Wasco and Hood River.  Home owners,
   protected by the Oregon Department of Forestry living in these  five counties were sent
   certifications forms and prescriptive information during the past three years. 
 
   If you are new to the area, misplaced the original documents or just need additional information
   you may call Kristin Cotugno at 541-447-5658, or visit the State Foresters Office links provided
   below.
