Appealing Your Oregon Senate Bill 762 Risk Class

Many of you may have received a notification from the Oregon Department of Forestry in regards to Oregon Senate Bill 762. This bill is to help Oregon modernize and improve wildfire preparedness through three key strategies: creating fire-adapted communities, developing safe and effective response, and increasing the resiliency of Oregon’s landscapes. This bill has been in the works for years and is a result of the destructive wildfire seasons that are becoming all too common within the last decade.
