Jackson County and the City, in partnership with the Oregon Partnership for Disaster Resilience at the University of Oregon, are seeking your input about how the County can plan for future events when air quality is impacted by prescribed fire and wildfire smoke. The purpose of the survey is to understand how wildfire and prescribed fire smoke impacts residents and visitors of Jackson County, how community members respond to periods of smoke, and how the County and the City can help to reduce the impacts of smoke.
The survey is being offered in both English and Spanish and will be available through October 15. Please take ten to fifteen minutes and complete the survey:
