Molalla workshop focuses on combatting wildfire dangers
A workshop that could help Molalla residents combat wildfire danger is coming to the Molalla Grange on March 12.
Reports of destructive and life-threatening wildfires that have occurred in western states in the past few years may make owners of forested land nervous about the upcoming dry weather of summer. Be proactive and educate yourself on the steps you can take to make your home and property more fire resistant.
Three upcoming workshops will offer these topics: creating defensible space around your home and outbuildings, reducing the fuel that makes fires more destructive and difficult to fight, making a plan for your family to escape in the case of wildfire, and connecting with technical and limited financial assistance.
The workshops are free to attend, but space is limited, so registration is required. Molalla's workshop will be Tuesday, March 12, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Molalla Grange Hall, 127 Grange Ave.
These workshops are made possible through a partnership between Clackamas Community College, Clackamas County Department of Disaster Management, Clackamas County Farm Forestry Association, Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District, Oregon Department of Forestry, and Oregon State University Extension Service.
