Fall precipitation ends fire season for lands protected by Oregon Department of Forestry

As of 12:01 am, October 14, 2017, the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) has terminated fire season for forestlands protected by the Northeast Oregon District. This includes private, state, county, municipal and tribal lands protected by Oregon Department of Forestry. The Northeast Oregon District includes lands in the following counties: Union, Baker, Umatilla, Wallowa and small portions of Grant, Morrow and Malheur counties. The current weather pattern has provided enough moisture to significantly reduce the fire danger.

Matt Hoehna, Unit Forester, Pendleton Unit encourages people to remain vigilant. “We’ve gotten some moisture and it has reduced our fire danger, but the condition of the light fuels, grasses and light brush, can change quickly with wind or sunny days. When you are burning debris or slash piles remember to follow smoke management forecasts. If weather conditions become warm and dry, we ask that landowners check the piles that they previously burned for remaining heat that could cause problems. We often find ourselves fighting escaped burns in October and November.”

With the termination of fire season, requirements for obtaining a burn permit for residential yard debris burning are no longer in effect. Terminating fire season does not relieve landowners or forest operators of lawful responsibilities concerning the safe burning of debris or slash.

Specific Smoke Management/Burning Advisory Information:

• If you are under the protection of a rural or city fire department, please call and ask what their burning restrictions are. Burn permits for burn barrels or small amounts of yard debris are not required on lands protected by the Oregon Department of Forestry. In addition, burning within the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation requires a permit from CTUIR. Follow all requirements within the permit.
• Burning slash from forestry and logging activities requires a Notification of Operation/PDM from ODF. In addition to this permit, the local ODF office must be contacted prior to ignition. Before burning in northeast Oregon, it is important to check weather conditions relative to smoke management. For smoke management forecasts call (541)963-9781 or visit the following website: http://www.odf.state.or.us/DIVISIONS/protection/fire_protection/Daily/neo.htm.
• Slash burns must be registered with the local ODF office at least 7 days prior to burning and burning accomplishments after 7 days.

The Northeast Oregon District of the Oregon Department of Forestry would like to thank all of our landowners, forest operators and the public for their efforts in fire prevention, detection and
suppression activities this season. In 2017, Northeast Oregon District experienced a lower number of fire starts and acres burned than the 10-year average.

For further information, call your local ODF office:
La Grande Unit (541)963-3168
Baker City Sub-Unit (541)523-5831
Wallowa Unit (541)886-2881
Pendleton Unit (541)276-3491

To report a fire, call the Blue Mountain Interagency Dispatch Center at (541)963-7171, or dial 9-1-1.

COLD WEATHER SETTING IN -- HAVE YOU WINTERIZED YET? 10/05/17
We are right at the edge of receiving freezing temperatures at the lake as of this writing. Lows at night are ranging in the 35 degree area and day time is climbing back to the Low 50's High 40's. Now is the time to get the cabin in order for a another big winter.

A few ideas:
-Make sure your heat tapes are still functioning along with adding more pipe insulation if needed. The likely area to receive a frozen pipe is usually your crawl space...being sure this section of pipe is warm and insulated makes all the difference.

-Add minor amounts of liquid antifreeze to your toilets and pea-traps...both sinks and showers.

-Make sure your thermostat batteries are fresh and that the heat does come on when needed when you are away.

-Plan for power outages.

-Shut off your cabin water if possible. This option is always best if you won't be to be back for a long time. Better safe than sorry.

Remember: it only takes one broken pipe in a random cabin to drain the entire system. Please do your part and keep the water supply full all winter long.

If you have any questions about winterization tips...feel free to call me.

Thanks!
Jerry

Fire season remains in effect, however Oregon Department of Forestry’s additional fire restrictions are terminated

While cooler and wetter conditions have arrived throughout the region, fire season remains in effect for private, state, county, municipal and tribal lands protected by the Oregon Department of Forestry in northeast Oregon. Due to the change in the weather, the additional restrictions of the Regulated-Use Closure have been terminated as of 12:01 am, September 21, 2017. ODF’s general fire season restrictions mean that burn permits are required for all open fires (except campfires), debris burns and burn barrels. ODF will still need to issue a burn permit for any open burns or burn barrels within the protection district until weather conditions warrant an end to fire season. Campfires fires are now allowed with landowner permission.

Steve Meyer, Baker Wildland Fire Supervisor, cautions “The recent moisture we’ve received has really improved fire danger conditions. However, those conditions can change rapidly with a spell of hot and dry weather, or a wind event. There’s still a need to use caution when having a campfire or lighting a burn barrel or debris pile. This is the time of year when human caused fire numbers can really increase.”

The Northeast Oregon District includes lands in the following counties: Union, Baker, Umatilla, Wallowa and small portions of Grant, Morrow and Malheur counties.

To obtain a burn permit from ODF, call your local ODF office: La Grande Unit (541)963-3168
Baker City Sub-Unit (541)523-5831 Wallowa Unit (541)886-2881
