2012 Large Fire Review

​Each fire season typically results in multiple joint jurisdiction fires that require excellent coordination and communication with cooperators and landowners to be successful in meeting suppression objectives and serving our customers. The 2012 fire season presented the Department of Forestry (ODF) and its cooperators with a number of challenging multi-jurisdictional fires. These fires occurred in several locations in central and eastern Oregon, and involved a variety of landowners and fire management agencies.

The goal of this review is to apply lessons learned from large, joint jurisdiction fires through a deliberate, external review effort to, improve existing policies, or develop new policies and/or processes for the future that will improve ODF’s complete and coordinated fire protection system – with a specific focus on communicating and coordinating with landowners during these events.
