The Astoria, Forest Grove, and Tillamook Districts will declare Fire Season on MONDAY, JULY 10, 2017, at 1:00 a.m. Conditions have continued to dry out and the weather is predicted to keep us on that trajectory.
Also note the “Area Wide” waiver from the Northwest Oregon Area Director has been approved, which will continue with our practice of a 1 hour fire watch under IFPL 1; 2 hour fire watch under IFPL 2; and a 3 hour fire watch for IFPL 3.
The Districts are at full staffing. If you have any questions, please contact your local unit office. Thanks-
If you have done so already, now is the perfect time to inventory your fire equipment to ensure it is in good working order, review your fire plan, and double check water hole locations and conditions.
