Fire Adapted Oregon Initiative aims to improve community resiliency to wildfire in Oregon. The Community Wildfire Risk Reduction team provides local coordination, funding, education, and training to support the initiative. Progress toward a more fire adapted Oregon will only be possible through a collaborative push to create strategies, which require substantial cooperation with many partners. Fire Adapted Oregon is grounded in statewide data, science, and defensible space practices.
A fire adapted community is one where those who live there are informed and prepared, collaboratively planning and taking action to coexist with wildland fire safely. These communities are knowledgeable and engage and take proactive steps in the built and natural environment to safely accept fire as part of the surrounding landscape. A fire adapted community is not an end state or a checklist; rather, it is a dynamic state of being in which community members and agencies adopt a continuous mitigation and adaptation process. Successful fire adapted community approaches have the potential to save lives, homes, and communities, as well as reduce suppression costs while allowing the beneficial ecological processes of fire to take place.
