Industrial fire precaution level drops on C.O. public lands


With continued cool weather, along with more precipitation, the Prineville District of the Bureau of Land Management, the Deschutes and Ochoco national forests and Crooked River National Grassland will lower the Industrial Fire Precaution Level (IFPL) to Level 1.

The change will go into effect at 12:01 a.m. Saturday on public lands in Central Oregon.

Under IFPL 1, classified as “Closed Season-Fire precaution requirements are in effect,” a fire watch/security is required.

Individuals with a valid firewood cutting permit can operate any time of day. Firewood cutters should ensure spark arrestors are in good working order and follow all fire precaution measures when cutting in dry fuels.

Officials want to remind the public that using explosive target material such as Tannerite, explosives and fireworks continue to be prohibited on all federal lands.
