EUGENE, Ore. -- Lane County and the Oregon Department of Forestry are asking for the public's input on the Community Wildfire Protection Plan.

The electronic survey aims to gather residents’ perceptions of wildfire risk, what type of help is needed and ways to fund the work.

Results from the survey will help local officials better prioritize where to put scarce resources.

“We continue to experience hotter, drier and longer fire seasons across much of the Pacific Northwest,” said Lane County Emergency Manager Patence Winningham. “Most of Lane County is forested. The updated plan will prioritize where work to reduce wildfire risk should occur and survey responses will help us understand how to get the most bang for our buck.”

Lane County residents in the wildland-urban interface are encouraged to take the survey by clicking here. The survey will be available through August.
