    Oregon Department of Forestry’s (ODF) Central Oregon District is declaring Fire Season on June 1, 2020 at 12:01 a.m. Summer weather patterns continue to dry wildland fuels and increase the risk for fire spread. Fire season declaration is intended to reduce human fire starts by restricting some activities related to forest operations and open burning.

    Please see attached documents for the requirements to operate during the fire season and the official declaration of fire season. As the fire season progresses and you have an active operation, you can expect myself or Chase Duncan to visit your operation to inspect your fire equipment.

    We would also like to take the opportunity to remind you to double check areas where you had burned piles for residual heat. If you would like to utilize our IR camera to help ensure your fire is out, please contact us to coordinate.

    For additional information on ODF’s Central Oregon District, including contact information and unit offices, please visit

    Be safe out there and if you have questions you can contact myself or Chase Duncan at the contact info below.

    Thanks for your time,
