The Industrial Fire Precaution Level will stay at IFPL 1 and Public Use Restrictions are not in effect. All backyard debris burning is prohibited.
June 7, 2019 (revised June 10, 2019); DFPA Update
The 2019 fire season will officially begin Tuesday, June 11th at 12:01 a.m. on all lands that are protected by the Douglas Forest Protective Association. The declaration of fire season imposes certain fire restrictions on both the general public and industrial operators to help prevent wildfires.
We are going to go ahead and move the fire danger to Moderate. The Industrial Fire Precaution Level will stay at IFPL 1 and Public Use Restrictions are not in effect. Until the PUR’s go into effect, there are no shut down times on power equipment and campfires are still allowed on private property with landowner permission. Again, with the start of fire season, the big thing that happens is that all backyard debris burning is prohibited.
