Preparing for fire

Abstract/Description: Two homeowners in the Santiam Canyon used federal cost-share grants to help them clear brush from around their house. This paid off when both homes survived the devastating Beachie Creek Fire of September 2020. ODF works with local landowners to make them aware of such grants, offer technical advice on what to do to build fire resistance, and certifies the completed work.
