Firefighting ground resources

Incident Resources Agreement (IRA) program

Thank you for your interest in assisting with wildland firefighting in Oregon! ODF has updated its internal protocols to offer potential vendors the opportunity to provide fire resources through administration of the ODF Incident Resources Agreement (IRA) program at a statewide level. We are working hand-in-hand 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 aircraft, hand crews, heavy equipment, engines/tenders, medical units, security services and others. These assets and services are secured by ODF Call-When-Needed (CWN) Incident Resource Agreements (IRA). IRA contractors may work within specific ODF geographic areas, or under statewide ODF jurisdiction.
