Wildfire Preparedness


Summer is here and that means longer days, sunnier skies, and warmer weather. It also means wildfire season is back. Whether you are new to Lane County or a lifelong resident, a wildfire has the potential to affect all of us. As your electric co-op, we know the importance of wildfire preparedness and are working every day to keep our neighbors, employees, and you, our members, safe. Preparing for potential wildfires is a community effort that requires everyone to do their part. Lane Electric is here to help you protect yourself and your family in the event of a wildfire. 

We are committed to staying wildfire ready. Will you join us? Sign our pledge and be entered to win a prize. One member from each Lane Electric district will receive a new emergency kit. Share the pledge with neighbors and friends to help spread awareness about the importance of wildfire preparedness. Review contest rules here
