State and federal agencies are assisting county and local emergency management agencies with assessing hazards and removing ash, debris and hazardous substances from wildfire impacted areas. It is recommended that you do not disturb ash or debris on your property until after it has been assessed by hazardous materials response professionals.

Visit Oregon DEQ’s website and review DEQ Guidance documents regarding fire debris management, including considerations before returning to your property and safely managing ash and debris from burned buildings.
