Fire

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.
