On June 30th Oregon's Wildfire Risk Explorer was made available to the public. The Wildfire Risk Explorer maps identify the wildland-urban interface and wildfire risk at the property ownership level. Every tax lot in the state has received a wildfire risk category, ranging from no risk to extreme risk. Properties designated as high or extreme risk and located within the wildland-urban interface will be subject to regulation, including defensible space and home hardening standards (on future construction or remodel). Additionally, local governments may also regulate other risk classes and state agencies may seek further regulation on high and extreme risk classes outside of the wildland-urban interface.
The map is located here. You can search by address- if you would like to see the wildland-urban interface, you must click the wildland-urban interface box under "Go to Layers."
