Brooks Resources was honored to receive recognition by Project Wildfire last month for our efforts to educate our community and promote resilient landscapes in Central Oregon.
Brooks Resources has been actively involved in the mitigation of disastrous wildfire danger in Central Oregon. Some of those efforts include:
- Creating a Firewise Committee in North Rim and receiving designation as a Firewise Community
- Commitment to NFPA standards and Firewise in The Tree Farm community
- Staff volunteer time serving on the Central Oregon Cohesive Strategy Steering Committee
- Participating in the first learning lab promoted by the Cohesive Strategy efforts at The Tree Farm
- Staff participation in a panel at the National Association of Counties conference
- On-going desire to work with Project Wildfire, USFS and our governmental agencies to help educate our community about living in a fire-resilient landscape
We congratulate all recipients of the 2017 Project Wildfire awards: Heart of Oregon Corps Cloverdale Volunteer Fire Fighter’s Association, Bend Firefighters Local 227, Ernie Halcon, and Sisters-Camp Sherman Fire District. Everyone on this list is doing great work to help promote fire resilient landscapes and do their part in protecting our community.
