Last summer’s wildfire events impacted many Oregonians. These events reminded us how important it is to plan and be prepared for wildfire.

Planning and preparing for wildfire can feel like a massive endeavor. What can we do? Who can help? How do we continue to build wildfire adapted and prepared communities?

Every community is unique; however, you are not alone. We can learn from our neighbors whether they are next door, across the state or even in a different state.

For this webinar, we invited our neighbors from southwest Colorado to tell us their story. Join us and learn how one community was affected by wildfires in 2002 and their journey to come together, rebuild, and take the action needed to save their lives and property from wildfire and the impact their actions had on wildfires in their neighborhoods since.

What you will learn:

  • How other communities in the west have adapted to living in a wildfire environment
  • 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.
