Medford, Ore. -- May is "Wildfire Awareness" month and the Oregon Department of Forestry is hoping you'll do your part to prevent fires.
There's a lot at stake: in 2013, three firefighters died battling Oregon wildfires and timber losses added up to $370-million.
The Keep Oregon Green Association says it's important to keep your yard maintained and spring is the perfect time to do it by removing dead, flammable vegetation and to trimming trees.
