Oregon Asks For Federal Wildfire Help

(Salem, OR) -- Governor Kate Brown is asking President Biden to approve a federal Emergency Declaration for Wildfires. If granted, Oregon would be the first state to receive direct assistance under a Presidential declaration for wildfires. Brown says similar to states that prepare for a hurricane, Oregon got ready for increased and worsening fires during last weekend's windstorm and extreme fire danger. Power was turned off, firefighters were brought in from out-of-state and positioned to respond to any fires that started, along with other proactive measures. The declaration would bring additional resources from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
