Oregon Wildfire Summit Comes to Wildhorse

Posted: Updated:

PENDLETON, Wash. - A wildfire prevention summit is planned for Wildhorse Casino outside of Pendleton, Oregon, Tuesday, Nov. 28.

The public is invited to attend, as the focus will be on the insurance industry's role in helping homeowners prepare for and prevent wildfires.

The public can also get answers on Senate Bill 360, passed in 1997 and just now planned for implementation in Umatilla County, which requires some landowners near forest land to clear excess vegetation from their lands. 

The summit is from 8:15 a.m. until 3 in the afternoon at Wildhorse.
