Wildfire is one of the most serious threats to Southern Oregon. The past few summers especially have resulted in significant fires — bringing relentless smoke and air quality concerns to our area, in addition to the obvious devastation of natural resources, wildlife habitat, and property.
Whether fires happen close to town or in very remote parts of our our region, they are a serious concern. NewsWatch 12 works to bring you up-to-the-minute coverage every day of the year so that you can keep your families safe and prepared in the face of wildfire. Our efforts culminate in FireWatch Week — enhanced coverage between July 8 and 12, encompassing our broadcasts, website, and social media presence.
You'll find everything you need to stay in the know right here on our FireWatch page, on our broadcast livestream, our Facebook page, Twitter or under #FireWatch.
