SALEM, Ore. – The Oregon Office of State Fire Marshal is excited to announce that it will host a series of webinars in May to help prepare Oregonians for wildfire.
The OSFM has brought in experts in their fields to speak. The webinars will focus on insurance preparedness, how homes really ignite during wildfire and what can be done to better protect the home; a look at Oregon’s evacuation levels and what they mean, and what fire-resistant plants Oregonians can use in their defensible space plan.
These webinars continue a series that is part of the OSFM’s Fire Adapted Oregon initiative.
