Fire Season
During Fire Season, which can run from late May through October, Public Affairs Staff rotate Fire Duty - serving as the first point of contact for information during and outside of regular business hours about fires on lands protected by the Oregon Department of Forestry.  Duty Officers issue Daily Fire Updates that are provided to media outlets and also posted on the agency's fire blog at http://wildfireoregondeptofforestry.blogspot.com/. If you have questions at any time about fires on department-protected lands, contact the Fire Duty Officer listed on the fire updates or 503-945-7200 and ask to be connected to the Fire Duty Officer.
