Fire restrictions lifted in SCOFMP managed forests

Regulated Use Closures/Public Use Restrictions Lifted, Industrial Fire Precaution Level reduced to Level I, Adjective Class to a Moderate.


LAKEVIEW, Ore. - The South Central Oregon Fire Management Partnership will be lifting Regulated Use Closures/Public Use Restrictions, dropping the Adjective Class to a Moderate, and reducing the Industrial Fire Precaution Level to a I (Closed Season) for the Fremont-Winema National Forest, Lakeview District Bureau of Land Management and Klamath-Lake District Oregon Department of Forestry lands effective Monday, September 16, 2019, at 09:30.

The decision to transition to an IFPL I and dropping the Adjective Class to a Moderate was made based on current temperatures, relative humidity, fuel moisture levels, and projected conditions over the coming weeks.

Level I- Closed Season- Fire precaution requirements are in effect. A Fire Watch/Security is required at this time and all higher levels unless otherwise waived.

Please remember even as restrictions drop to a lower level, we are still in fire season. Even with the expected moisture conditions will dry out after the storms pass. Please continue to be vigilant and use caution when recreating on public and private lands.

It is the responsibility of all individuals to know and comply with the Industrial Fire Precaution Levels (IFPL) that are in place. Failure to comply with fire precautionary requirements may result in the issuance of a violation notice.
