The program through OSU Extension will offer local landowners tips and ideas about dealing with wildfires.

On March 17, OSU Forestry & Natural Resources Extension, along with state and local agencies and community partners, will launch a Wildfire Wednesdays lunch and learn program called "Fire Aware. Fire Prepared."

FILE PHOTO - The OSU Forestry & Natural Resources Extension will be holding regular online classes regarding wildfire precautions every Wednesday online. The classes will be available to watch live or later.

This statewide campaign will help Oregonians prepare for the reality of wildfires through greater awareness and actions. It will address preparedness at three levels:

Individual: What you can do now to get yourself, your family, and your home ready.

Community: How you can be a part of promoting a wildfire-safe community.

Landscape: How you can live and thrive in a fire-adapted environment.

Online webinar sessions will be delivered on alternating Wednesdays, starting in March and continuing through June 2021.

Instructors will introduce core ideas and list actions families and communities can take to prepare themselves ahead of every wildfire season.

Extension will also host local online sessions, where participants can learn details about fire and emergency response specific to their own county or area.

These sessions will provide plenty of opportunities for discussion on how to begin putting the lessons into action.
