News Release
LOCATION UPDATE: OSFM to Host Town Hall Meeting on 2022 Oregon Defensible Space Code Development - 08/08/22

The location for this town hall meeting is updated.

SALEM, Ore. - The Oregon Office of State Fire Marshal (OSFM) is hosting a series of town hall meetings to talk about the 2022 Oregon Defensible Space Code, its development, timelines, and opportunity for community input.

The OSFM is working through a public development process with the Oregon Defensible Space Code development committee, a diverse group of stakeholders, to develop the code based on the framework established through SB 762. To continue the open and transparent process, the OSFM is hosting a series of 17 community town halls across Oregon, which began last week in Southern Oregon.

The OSFM will host a town hall discussion in Lane County this week. The meeting will be held Tuesday, August 9, 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the University of Oregon, 240A McKenzie Hall, 1101 Kincaid St., Eugene.

For a full schedule, visit Oregon Defensible Space Code webpage.

Oregon Senate Bill 762 directs the OSFM to establish minimum defensible space code standards and where they may apply. Accordingly, the OSFM created a section on their website dedicated to the defensible space code development process. To learn more, visit defensible space code requirements.
