The Douglas Forest Protective Association (DFPA) began the 2018 fire season on June 8th for all private, county, state, Bureau of Land Management and Bureau of Indian Affairs lands protected by DFPA.  The declaration of fire season imposes certain fire restrictions on both the general public and industrial operators to help prevent wildfires.  These restrictions apply to all properties within Glide Fire District.

As fire season progresses, additional public and industrial fire restrictions may be imposed as fire conditions become more severe. 

For more information about public or industrial fire restrictions on lands protected by DFPA, call DFPA’s Closure Information Line at 672-0379, or visit www.dfpa.net.  An interactive map with state wide fire restrictions can also be viewed online at https://gisapps.odf.oregon.gov/firerestrictions/PFR.html
