Richard Fairbanks, local fire expert, will present a historical approach about Southern Oregon's relationship with wildfire and how to use it as a tool to protect homes and communities while maintaining forest health and resiliency. Before the next fire season, take some time to learn about how weather, past land management, and the geology of our region shapes our relationship with fire. Together we can discuss the best practices that land managers and homeowners can use to work with fire as a tool for community safety and forest health.
Fire expert Rich Fairbanks lives locally in the Applegate and has over 40 years of experience in Wildfire Management. He has had a number of positions inside the U.S. Forest Service including his position as the Team Leader for the Biscuit Fire Recovery Project after the 2002 fire.
