Over the last several years, several wildfires have affected the Warm Springs community. In June of 2021, the S-503 fire destroyed approximately 7,000 acres. With wildfire season coming, it is essential to do what can be done to reduce the damage caused during a wildfire event.
The Emergency Manager of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs has requested Team Rubicon perform fuel reduction, create defensible space, and clean up select areas on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation. Warm Springs is the largest reservation in Oregon and the home of the Warm Springs, Wasco, and Paiute Native American Tribes.
Team Rubicon is committed to supporting the Warm Springs community in their efforts to reduce the impact of wildland fire that historically sweeps through the reservation every year.
