Katie Wollstein (Rangeland Fire Regional Specialist) and Jacob Powell (OSU Agricultural Extension Agent) are hosting a webinar on fire preparedness for farmers and ranchers. Please advertise in venues you feel appropriate. Specifics and registration information is in the attached flyer.
Agricultural Wildfire Refresher Webinar, Wednesday, February 10th, noon to 1:30
This free webinar with OSU Extension will cover wildfire safety and prevention for agricultural operations and small landowners. The Lone Pine Rangeland Fire Protection Association and their partners will discuss their fire prevention plan. In addition, the webinar will feature a roundtable discussion with local fire managers in North Central Oregon on what producers should do when they have a wildfire and how they can collaborate with first responders in suppression efforts. This webinar is one option for producers to attend an annual agricultural wildfire refresher in 2021 to meet Oregon OSHA requirements for producers with employees who engage in fire suppression on their property. Certificates will be available for attendees. Additional requirements are for producers and employees to receive some sort of initial wildfire training, along with having an emergency action plan for medical and fire emergencies, fire prevention plan, and Job Hazard Analysis form.
