The Oregon legislature just passed a new law. Not only asking for updated wildfire ecology mapping, but requiring homeowners in fire ecology areas to create and maintain defensible space. This is smart. Enormous amounts of taxpaying dollars go into protecting property during wildfire season. If homeowners, who chose to live in wildfire ecology areas are working to protect their homes and property, this may not only reduce wildfire spreading because of fuel consumption, but also save wildfire fighter lives. Contact us for help in creating defensible space.
