State agency representatives also discuss their roles in a wildfire, from fire suppression to immediate response to long-term recovery. The Oregon Department of Forestry, the Oregon Department of Emergency Management and the Oregon Department of Human Services are collectively working together to reduce the impacts of wildfire on individuals, families, and communities and help those who have suffered a loss move forward into recovery and rebuilding.
