2013 ORS § 477.025¹
Classification of lands to reflect different protection problems

The Legislative Assembly recognizes that the forestland-urban interface in Oregon varies by condition, situation, fire hazard and risk, that different forestland-urban interface fire protection problems exist across the state because of this variability, that these different problems necessitate varied fire prevention and protection practices and that, in order to give recognition to such differences and their effect on the accomplishment of the public policy stated in ORS 477.023 (Fire protection system), certain classifications of the forestland-urban interface within the State of Oregon are established by ORS 477.027 (Rules for classification of lands) to 477.057 (State Forester to classify land if county fails to act).
