Frenchglen fire protection association forming

Print Print

The Oregon Board of Forestry is holding a public hearing on a proposal to form a Frenchglen Rangeland Fire Protection Association.



The proposal calls for forming a cooperative, nonprofit, landowner-directed fire association to provide fire protection for rangelands in portions of Harney County.



The hearing is scheduled Dec. 11 at the Frenchglen Hotel, beginning at 3 p.m.



Rural fire protection associations were authorized by the Oregon Legislature in 1963 to fill a gap in protection for portions of the state. Currently 14 associations are active in Oregon.
