(Salem, OR) -- The State of Oregon is spending two-point-seven million dollars to reduce wildfire risk in 25 counties. The money was allocated by the legislature. Projects include wildfire-specific community risk reduction projects, education, defensible space projects, home assessments, media campaigns and fuel mitigation. In Morrow County, for example, money will be used to help homeowners create defensible space around structures. The funding comes from the Fire Adaptive Oregon initiative.
