In Oregon, May is designated as Wildfire Awareness Month, but we encourage Oregonians and visitors to be wildfire aware throughout the entire year.
There are many things Oregonians can do to be prepared for wildfire. One of which is creating defensible space. The OSFM has several resources to help Oregonians create and maintain defensible space. These simple actions could make all the difference in the event of a wildfire.
The OSFM will host webinars in May about being prepared for wildfire. Sign up to receive emails from the OSFM about upcoming webinar opportunities by clicking the webinar image below.
The OSFM created a social media kit for you to use with downloadable images to share on your social media channels. Find the kit here:

It takes a team across many state agencies and community partners to prepare Oregonians for wildfire. Click the images below to learn how to prevent fires from Keep Oregon Green and the Oregon Department of Forestry. The Oregon Department of Emergency Management can help with emergency alerts, evacuations, and how to prepare your family in the event you need to leave your home. The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality is a great resource for smoke information on air quality.
To rise to the challenge of wildfire in Oregon, it is going to take us all to do our part to prevent and prepare.
