Fire Restrictions & Closures

Last Updated on

As of October 1, 2019, Fire Season for Jackson and Josephine Counties is terminated.

For current restrictions, click here.

When FIRE SEASON​ goes into effect, the Oregon Department of Forestry and our partners impose restrictions pertaining to public use and work related activities. These restrictions are organized into two categories:

1) PUBLIC USE RESTRICTIONS determine permissible activities not related to forest industrial operations. For current public use restrictions visit: http://swofire.com/restrictions/

2) INDUSTRIAL FIRE PRECAUTION LEVELS (IFPL)  determine permissible activities for industrial operations in our forests. For current IFPL information, visit: https://swofire.com/ifpl/

You can also view current restrictions by accessing our interactive web maps using the buttons below. Areas outside ODF protection, such as the USDA Forest Service, will provide links to other agency fire regulation information.  

SKY LANTERNS ARE PROHIBITED YEAR ROUND THROUGHOUT OREGON.

THE USE OF EXPLODING TARGETS AND TRACER AMMUNITION IS PROHIBITED DURING FIRE SEASON.

BACKYARD DEBRIS BURNING IS PROHIBITED DURING FIRE SEASON. SOME DISTRICTS ALLOW BURNING WITH PERMIT. 

The district protects 1.8 million acres of state, private, county, city and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) forestlands in Jackson and Josephine Counties.
