Citizen Fire Academy - Protect Your Home From Wildfire: A Workshop for Homeowners

Protect your home and property. Be a leader for Wildfire Preparedness in Your Community.
Our communities are at risk for wildfire in Oregon. The good news is that if we take action and prepare for wildfire, we can do something about it. Join us for a one-day workshop where we focus on the most important part of your fire defense strategy: the area within 200 feet of your home. Learn how a fire professional views your home and property, and the steps you can take to reduce risk.
The Citizen Fire Academy (CFA) education program puts wildfire preparedness into the hands of landowners and the community, with the help of local, state, and federal fire management agencies.
Cost for the full program: $5/person. Please register for Citizen Fire Academy by June 1. To register:

Introduction to Clackamas Extension Forestry

We provide woodland owners, land managers, youth, and the general public with objective, research-based information and educational resources to help them make informed decisions. We bring state and national expertise to the community through our affiliation with the OSU Forestry and Natural Resources Extension Program and the OSU College of Forestry. We work collaboratively with many community organizations that have a shared interest in our region's forests, including soil and water conservation districts, watershed councils, landowner organizations, school districts and state agencies.
