October 12, 2015 --

Wyden-ron-SenatorOregon Senator Ron Wyden

Senator Ron Wyden announced that Oregon has received a $3 million federal grant to reduce fire risks to more than 2,200 homes in parts of Crook, Deschutes and Klamath counties that are adjacent to forests.

The grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will fund the thinning and limbing of trees, clearing out of undergrowth, and other vegetative debris removal to create a defensible space around buildings and other structures on about 3,780 acres of private and public lands designated at high-risk for fire within the wildland-urban interface and rural areas of Crook, Deschutes, and Klamath counties.
