Wildfire Risk Prevention - Home Assessments in Lake Grove 

May contain: fire

While Northwest Oregon and the Willamette Valley had a wet spring, the remainder of the state is experiencing drought conditions. Conditions can change quickly, as we saw with the record-breaking heat and drought conditions in 2021. 

The Lake Oswego Fire Department is offering free home assessments for homes in the Wildland-Urban Interface. Assessments focus on the home ignition zone and provide recommendations on ways to protect your home from wildfire. 

Recommendations may include:  

  • Remove flammable debris from your roof and gutters.
  • Cut back tree limbs at least 10 feet from the roof line.
  • Remove all combustible items from under your deck or porch.
  • Plant fire-resistant plants. 
  • Keep grass mowed to less than 4 inches in height.


For questions or to request a home assessment, please contact the Lake Oswego Fire Department at 503-635-0275.
