Fire prevention

Oregonians take great pride in the many treasures our state has to offer. Oregon Department of Forestry's mission to protect, manage and promote stewardship of our forests begins with fire prevention. Make fire prevention a priority in your life by following rules and regulations and being good stewards of the land. Stay up-to-date with fire restrictions by visiting our fire restrictions map. Browse the rest of our site below for additional fire prevention and safety tips whether you're at home, at work, or play. Let's Keep Oregon Green for this generation and generations to come.
