Living with Fire

Oregon State University's Forestry and Natural Resources (FNR) Extension  Program would like to know: How we can best serve our audiences and communities? We would like to capture information in a variety of areas: who you are, how well our current programs and offerings are, what sort of programming is lacking, and how best to supprt and meet your needs through educational programming. Please take a few monents to complete this survey.

As Westerners, we live with fire. It's a fact of life, dominating our summer news diet, interrupting our vacations, and threatening our homes, lives and livelihoods. But lately it seems wildfires have been in the news too much.

OFRI has just released State of Fire, a special report and video exploring some disturbing trends: longer fire seasons, uncharacteristically severe fires and soaring costs. Both are available at OregonForests.org.

WHY SHOULD I EVACUATE?

During a wildfire emergency safety of lives is the first and most important objective of firefighting. If you, your family, and neighbors are in a safe place when a wildland fire gets close, the main goal of firefighting is accomplished.
