Tue 9:25 | May is Wildfire Awareness Month

It’s that time of year again. Just as there is the promise of April showers and May flowers, this year there is also the promise of a fire season. Some parts of the region are already taking industrial fire precautions in the forests.

May is Wildfire Awareness Month and the Oregon Department of Forestry is issuing its annual warnings to get people and their properties ready for the dry, hot days ahead. Public Information Officer Rachael Pope joins the JX to talk about wildfire prevention, safety, and creating a defensible space around your home.
