We live in an area that is at a higher risk for wildfire due to its proximity to forest land. While wildfire is a natural part of our ecosystem, dry summer weather combined with human-caused sparks means there is always a risk of wildfire in our community. Work with us to help keep wildfire out of our backyard.
Be sure to bring the kids, Cody the Official Fire Safety Dalmatian of the Eugene Fire and EMS Department will be there to help teach young children about fire safety.
