Media Advisory: Forestry Department to host media availability on wildland-urban interface and wildfire risk map

SALEM, Ore.—Press conference scheduled at 3:30 p.m., July 5.

The Oregon Department of Forestry will hold a press availability on July 5 at 3:30 p.m. to share details and answer questions about the recently released wildland-urban interface (WUI) and statewide wildfire risk map.

The map, available through the Oregon Explorer, is a tool to help inform decision making and planning related to mitigating wildfire risk for communities throughout Oregon. 

ODF Fire Protection Chief Mike Shaw, Wildfire Programs Director Doug Grafe, and others will be on hand to answer questions about the map’s function, purpose, and potential defensible space requirements.  

Members of the media who wish to attend must RSVP by 3 p.m., July 1, by emailing facilitator Derek Gasperini at derek.gasperini@odf.oregon.gov. An RSVP confirmation email will include the Zoom link for the event and login information.
