Philomath Fire & Rescue offers free Defensible Space assessments to help you understand the unique wildfire risks around your property.

To continue to build and maintain a resilient fire adapted community, Philomath Fire & Rescue has partnered with the Office of the State Fire Marshal (OSFM) to help us meet this need. Philomath Fire & Rescue performs Defensible Space assessments within our Fire District to advise property owners and residents on the wildfire risks associated with their property and how to reduce those risks.

 If your property is outside of our District, you can contact OSFM at 503-934-0874, or

Request a Defensible Space Assessment for your property within Philomath city limits by submitting this form.

Please Note: Due to the high demand for these assessments, it may take several weeks before scheduling your assessment. Thank you for your patience.
