OSU Offers Webinar On Wildfire Recovery


Join the Oregon State University Extension Fire Program on January 25 from 3 -

4:30 (PST) for a very special webinar to learn what you can do to take action and

become wildfire adapted. Special guests will also join the webinar from the

Wildfire Adapted Partnership (a Colorado non-profit) and the Oregon Department

of Forestry. Last summer’s wildfire events impacted many Oregonians. These events

reminded us how important it is to plan and be prepared for wildfire, even in our

coastal communities.


What can we do? Who can help? How do we strive to build wildfire adapted and

prepared communities? Planning and preparing for wildfire can feel like a massive endeavor and every community is unique. We don’t have to do this on our own! We can learn from

our neighbors, whether they are down the road, in a different county, or even in a

different western state. For this webinar, the Extension Fire Program invited partners from southwest Colorado to tell their story.


Learn how one community was affected by wildfires in 2002 and about their journey to rebuild and take action to save their lives and property from wildfire. They’ll also reveal the impact their actions had on subsequent wildfires in their communities. What you will learn:


 How other communities in the west have adapted to living with fire

 Tools and resources available to help you prepare for wildfire

 How to engage your neighbors and build capacity to strengthen your

wildfire adapted community This webinar is the first of a series from the OSU Extension Fire Program. This series will focus on wildfire preparedness including how to make your home and property more resilient to wildfire, how to work individually and as a community,

and more.
