When FIRE SEASON goes into effect, some activities in the great outdoors are prone to start fires. In an effort to prevent these fires from starting, the Oregon Department of Forestry and our partners impose restrictions pertaining to public and work related activities. To find out what is and is not allowed in your area, follow the link below to our interactive map. Areas outside ODF protection, such as the USDA Forest Service, will provide links to other agency fire regulation information.
ABOUT THIS MAP
This interactive tool provides the latest in wildland fire
risk and public and industrial fire restrictions associated with that risk.
Information is provided for areas protected by the Oregon Department of
Forestry and Forest Protective Associations. Areas outside our responsibility
will provide a link to the proper agency for more information. There are two
distinct groups that wildland fire restrictions apply to. The first is the
industrial operators, or workers. The second group is the general public.
NAVIGATING THE MAP
Zoom in and click the area in which you are seeking
information, whether it is for your home, out and about, or on the job. A
pop-up box will display with links to public and industrial fire restrictions.

WHAT DO THE DIFFERENT
The color coded map gives forest workers a snapshot of the
fire restrictions in place for given areas. When fire season goes into effect,
those working in wildland/forest areas throughout the state are required to meet
prevention equipment requirements.
West of the Cascade Mountain Range, workers must also follow time and
operation restrictions under the Industrial Fire
Precaution Level system. Workers east of the Cascade Mountain Range do not
observe the IFPL, but are required to follow other requirements based on fire
danger and weather.
are illustrated by color. They are not related to fire danger signs used for
fire danger awareness.

Current corporate closures
On behalf of Oregon Forest & Industries Council's member companies participating in the Corporate Closures Information page, we would wish to say "Thank You" to all for your understanding and adjustments to your summer and fall recreation activities on private timberlands.
The entire Pacific-NW has continued to experience severe drought conditions leaving both public and private forests at an increased risk for wildfire. These extended drought conditions have made forest fuels more susceptible to any ignition source, (no matter how cautious you may be), many activities of which never caused a fire under normal conditions.
We all know we cannot control lightning caused fires...but by implementing access restrictions as a "Prevention" tool, we can attempt to minimize the chance of accidental, yet very damaging and costly wildfires. Reducing the damage potential to natural resources, including both public and private resources (air, water, wildlife habitat), we hope to ensure their sustainable use and availability for the future. These efforts to reduce fire starts also improve public and firefighter safety exposure.
Thanks to all the firefighters for their continued efforts and Thank You for being a strong Prevention Partner.
