Work On Smoke Response Plan Continues

Oregon State University Extension in the Mid-Columbia continues to work with other agencies on a Community Response Plan for heavy smoke events.  OSU Extension received an $80,000 grant from the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality to put the plan together.  Extension Air Quality and Food Systems Coordinator Livi Plihal says they are a few months away from finishing.  She adds they are about to embark on focus groups, and hope to have the plan wrapped up in early spring.  She says one of the bigger challenges they have is developing the communication systems to disseminate information.  They also plan to have a mock smoke emergency event to test out the plan.  The plan covers the region from Cascade Locks to Maupin.
