JOHN DAY – The Oregon Department of Forestry’s John Day Unit will hold a pre-fire season meeting for Grant County forestland owners at its office, 415 Patterson Bridge Road, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 4.

ODF fire managers will provide the most current outlook for the 2015 fire season, along with information on what landowners should expect if a fire occurs on their land. Landowners will learn how they can assist in the fire suppression efforts on their land and what resources are available to them to repair and restore their property following a fire.

“As most folks are already aware, ongoing drought conditions have set the stage for a potentially severe fire season in Grant County and around the state,” says Rob Pentzer, ODF’s John Day Unit Forester. “This meeting is intended to help landowners understand what happens if they have a fire.”

For more information, contact the John Day ODF office at 541-575-1139.
