Within reason. Your failure to protect your property jeopardizes mine.

Fire is a real serious threat. Please simply review the videos online of the Santa Rosa, CA and Paradise, CA fires. Or even the Bandon, OR fire that wiped out the entire town. Harden your property to prevent fire, period. It's way overdue. Other states long ago have done this.

We don't want another Wildfire like the one that burned down Talent and Phoenix

But not based on the current assessments. The Dpt. of Forestry used 3 yr-old maps to determine risk assessments, and they are NOT accurate. I zeroed in on my home in NWX, where they said we were in high risk, and the map didn't even show the house next door to me which has been there for 3 years.

Take care of yourself AND your neighbors and area around you. I certainly don't want to be responsible for causing damage and heartache to others.

Well first of all I think this info is incorrect! I got one of the letters from the State of Oregon saying my property is high risk, and it says RECOMMENDED! It did NOT say REQUIRED steps be taken! I do not believe in Government overreach! Sick and tired of Democrat control freaks!

Curious if the illegal campers in the forest off China Hat got their notices as well. Since they're a MUCH GREATER fire risk than the average homeowner, is anyone taking steps to create defensible space around those homes? Of course not. This only applies to legal, taxpaying homeowners, as usual!

I had a stock option wire hub cap taken off my '67 Olds Cutlass convertible. It was irreplaceable.

I had an Automotive paint store for over 20 years. I had to close it when my wife's health took a rapid downhill turn. Now I'm taking care of her 24/7 with help from our 18 year old daughter. I had "Partners in I don't care" come over one time, never again do I want anyone else to care for her.

I had a business in Central Oregon for over 25 years. I would never open another business in the state of Oregon ever again.
