National Wildfire Community Preparedness Day – May 6, 2023:
Wildfire Community Preparedness Day is a national campaign that encourages people and organizations everywhere to come together on a single day to take action to raise awareness and reduce wildfire risks. It is held in the United States and Canada on the first Saturday in May. Prep Day is focused on what residents can do on and around their home to help protect against the threat of wildfires. Lincoln County utilizes these concepts in our local wildfire readiness presentation materials.
For more information check out the wildfire community preparedness day website. Lincoln County Emergency Management will be joined by the local Oregon Department of Forestry team and Fire Districts/Departments at the below outreach events in May and June. These in-person presentations will focus on the 8-part wildfire readiness series. For a list of dates for wildfire prepardness presenations go online to check out Wildfire Hazards website page.
