WE ARE FIREWISE: Living More Safely in the Wildland-Urban Interface
Date: Sunday, June 4th; 10:30 am to 11:30 am
Many Benton County residents live in the “wildland urban interface” (WUI), where homes are located in close proximity to forests, grasslands, and other areas subject to wildfire hazard. Still more homes are within the distance that airborne embers can travel from WUI areas in a wildfire event (one mile or more!), putting them at nearly as great a risk. Even in our wet climate, wildfire is a concern for all county residents. Yes, it can happen here! Learn how to use firewise practices to reduce the risk of losing your home in a wildfire. Come to WE ARE FIREWISE: Living More Safely in the Wildland-Urban Interface, a one-hour FREE community workshop to be held at Shonnard’s Nursery, 6600 SW Philomath Blvd., Corvallis on Sunday, June 4 from 10:30 am to 11:30 am.
