Now that winter is behind us, it's time to accept what lies ahead: summer and fire season.

Last year was a bad one in the region, with the September fires burning down thousands of homes in both of our states.

Oregon State University's Extension Service is getting a head start, offering "Fire Aware. Fire Prepared" webinars on alternate Wednesdays through the spring. The sessions deal with ways individuals, groups, and entire communities can prepare for fires.

Chris Adlam and Kara Baylog check in with an overview.
