Governor Kate Brown, joined by members of Oregon’s congressional delegation, met with FEMA Administrator Pete Gaynor to discuss ongoing wildfire recovery efforts. Among the top issues discussed were debris removal, housing, and safe drinking water.

“Faced with wildfire devastation of historic proportions, I am determined to make sure that Oregonians receive all available federal resources so we can rebuild our communities,” said Governor Brown. “I would like to thank Administrator Gaynor for coming personally to our state, and for FEMA’s continued partnership with Oregon in these efforts.”

Joining Governor Brown and Administrator Gaynor were U.S. Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley, Representative Peter DeFazio, Oregon Office of Emergency Management Director Andrew Phelps, and State Chief Operating Officer Katy Coba.
