Firefighting ground resources

Incident Resources Agreement (IRA) Program

Thank you for your interest in assisting with the wildland firefighting in Oregon! ODF offers contractors the opportunity to provide fire resources through the administration of the ODF Incident Resource Agreements. We are working with our field offices to integrate efficient business practices with emphases on the culture and diversity of landowner/community relationships in Oregon.

Private contractors provide an array of firefighting resources to ODF and its partnering agencies for wildfire mitigation, including hand crews, water handling/heavy equipment, medical units, security services, mobile kitchens and more. These assets and services are secured by ODF Call-When-Needed (CWN) Incident Resource Agreements (IRA). IRA contractors may select to work within specific ODF geographic areas, or under statewide ODF jurisdiction.

IRA resources are used primarily on ODF and ODF/federal jurisdiction incidents in Oregon. Occasionally these resources may be requested for federal incidents in Oregon and neighboring states.

Contract resources on active USFS VIPR agreements cannot be listed on ODF IRAs simultaneously. ODF and USFS regional cooperative partnership policies allow for the use of VIPR resources on ODF protected lands. This integration is critical to the success of keeping fires small through safe and aggressive initial attack and supporting extended attack and long duration campaign fires.
