Deschutes County Wildfire Mitigation

Deschutes County is considering changes to help reduce the risk of wildfire.  Changes to building codes and land use regulations are being considered to better protect our communities from wildfire.  The potential regulations would only apply in the rural county outside of city limits.  The two measures the county is considering include the use of fire-resistant building materials for new rural residential construction and requiring Defensible Space for all rural properties.
