Rep. David Gomberg (D-10th district) has announced an opportunity for wildfire survivors to share their experiences with the House Special Committee on Wildfire Recovery, tasked with identifying solutions and support for Oregonians affected by the Labor Day wildfires.
“The committee will hold two virtual public hearings in mid-February to hear directly from wildfire survivors in communities throughout Oregon about their post-fire experiences and needs related to shelter, cleanup, and rebuilding,” Gomberg said. “These stories will help the committee identify where to focus efforts this legislative session.”
The public hearings are:
• Monday, Feb. 15 (5:30 to 8:30 p.m.): canyon/valley, metro, coast regions;
Wednesday, Feb. 17 (5:30 to 8:30 p.m.): southern region.
Anyone who has wildfire experiences can provide feedback by internet, phone or in writing. They can also watch the hearings live or recorded later. Livestreaming of the meeting will be available at tinyurl.com/4dyo8ebm. For more information on the hearings, go online at tinyurl.com/1nfrq8t4.
