OSFM Set to Host a Townhall Meeting on 2022 Oregon Defensible Space Code Development

SALEM, Ore. - The Oregon Office of State Fire Marshal (OSFM) is hosting a series of townhall meetings to talk about the 2022 Oregon Defensible Space Code, its development, timelines, and upcoming opportunities for community input.

The OSFM has been working through a public development process with the Oregon Defensible Space Code Development committee; a diverse group of stakeholders, to develop the new code based on the framework established through SB 762. To continue that open and transparent process, the OSFM is hosting a series of 17 community townhalls across Oregon, which began last week in Southern Oregon.

OSFM will be hosting a town hall discussion in Lane County next week. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, August 9, 5:30 to 7 pm, University of Oregon, Lillis Hall Room 182, 955 E 13th Ave, Eugene

For a full schedule, please visit Oregon Defensible Space Code webpage.

Oregon Senate Bill 762 directs the OSFM to establish minimum defensible space code standards and where those may apply. Accordingly, the OSFM has set up a special section on its website dedicated to the defensible space code development process.
