What is Firewise?

Firewise is a voluntary program that provides a framework to help neighbors get organized, find direction, and take action to increase the ignition resistance of their homes and community.

The Greater Oakridge-Westfir Area and the City of Oakridge are both Firewise communities!

To maintain our Firewise status, the community must document annual volunteer hours. Firewise hours include homeowner work such as:


  • Mowing the lawn

  • Removing leaves, debris, and flammable materials from roofs, gutters, and decks

  • Relocating firewood piles at least 30 feet from the home

  • Helping neighbors Firewise their property

  • Dropping off yard debris at the Oakridge Westfir Yard Debris program, see flyer below.


Have you completed Firewise work around your property? We want to know!
