Jackson County is asking for your input on wildfire smoke in the community. It’s a collaboration between the county, city of Medford, and the Department of Environmental Quality. The survey asks questions about how wildfire smoke has impacted you directly. Your response will help create the county’s first-ever Smoke Management Community Response Plan. The plan will guide county and city officials, and fire protection agencies in mitigating the impacts of smoke events caused by prescribed fire and wildfire smoke in our community. The County Emergency Manager, Holly Powers says the plan has been a bucket list item for the county. “The completion of the Jackson County Community Response Plan will create a process by which hopefully the county will be able to issue prescribed burning notifications, also identify some mitigation activities for helping lessen the impact of a prescribed fire or wildfire smoke,” said Powers.
