In Jackson County three sites accepted material: Evans Valley Fire District #6 (Wimer), Agate Lake Station (FD#3), and Fire District #5 in Talent. Event sponsors included Jackson and Josephine Counties, the Josephine County Integrated Fire Plan, the Bureau of Land Management, the Forest Service, the Oregon Department of Forestry, Rural/Metro Fire Department, the City of Grants Pass, the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety, Jackson and Josephine County Fire Districts and the Rogue Valley Fire Prevention Cooperative. During the course of the event, organizers collected a total of 448 cubic yards of debris from 193 customers. In addition, participants completed a total of 115 questionnaires.
