New Billboard Campaign On Interstate 5 Urges Senator Wyden & Merkley to Firewise Homes to Save Lives 


Senator Wyden's 21st Century Conservation Act's (S.3684) Proposal to Grant the Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management More Than $6 Billion For More Public Lands Logging Would Be Wasteful and Dangerous Because It Would Waste Countless Resources, Labor, and Time on Logging Instead of Actually Making People's Homes and Properties Fire Resistant by Implementing Firewise Measures. 


Firewise Programs implement structural measures on homes and on the landscape within 150 feet of homes and adjacent structures. We believe this is the only way to prevent catastrophic loss of property and lives like what occurred in Paradise, CA in 2018 and Santa Rosa, CA in 2017. (FYI. My aunt & niece escaped the Santa Rosa fire & my grandfather's house with the clothes they had on. My grandfather's 1959 house built mostly with Redwood by him without power tools burned down. At least 22 people died in the Santa Rosa fires.) 

Further supporting a national Firewise Homes program, the report (link below) released in the spring of 2019 determined that within the Rogue, Applegate, and Illinois River watersheds of Southwest Oregon alone there were more than 105,ooo homes at risk of being destroyed by wildfire. Firewise measures would be essential to saving most of these homes if implemented before wildfire. Read More Here.
