WELCOME TO LANGDON LAKE
VETERANS DAY is Monday, November 11. Pay respect to a veteran.

Veterans Day (originally known as Armistice Day) is observed in the U.S. on November 11. Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect.

It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
--- General George S. Patton

Regulated-Use Closure terminated on lands protected by Oregon Department of Forestry
Fire Season still in effect


As of 12:01 am, September 10, 2019, the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) has terminated the Regulated- Use Closure, or Public Use Restrictions for forestlands protected by the Northeast Oregon District. Due to moderating weather and seasonal temperatures and precipitation, the closure and the associated fire prevention restrictions are no longer necessary. Campfires fires are now allowed with landowner permission. Steve Meyer, Baker Wildland Fire Supervisor, cautions “The recent precipitation has been welcome across the region. Although we seem to have entered a fall weather pattern, it’s important to stay aware of how quickly conditions can change. A warm or breezy day can dry the lighter fuels out and we can quickly be back into a dangerous fire situation. Making sure that campfires and burn barrels are always attended is a good step towards fire safety. Ensure the fire is dead out before leaving.”

While Public Use fire restrictions have eased, Fire Season remains in effect for private, state, county, municipal and tribal lands protected by Oregon Department of Forestry. 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.

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
Pendleton Unit (541)276-3491

Fire restrictions may differ on lands protected by rural fire departments or lands managed by the US Forest Service or BLM. Check local regulations before burning. More information on fire restrictions can be found the Blue Mountain Interagency Dispatch Center website at www.bmidc.org.

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

OREGON DEPT. OF FORESTRY TERMINATES FIRE SEASON FOR NORTHEAST OREGON DISTRICT, EFECCTIVE 10/12/18
Below is information from the Oregon Department of Forestry, which pertains to Langdon Lake property. Campfires are now allowed. There are no restrictions on mowing or chainsaw use.

Oregon Department of Forestry declares an end to fire season
La Grande, OR--

As of 12:01 am, October 12, 2018, the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) will terminate fire season for forestlands protected by the Northeast Oregon District. This includes over 2 million acres of 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 Northeast Oregon District has responded to a total of 74 fires burning on ODF protected lands in 2018. There have been 34 lightning fires for a total of 1,250 acres. Another 40 fires were human caused and burned a total of 158 acres. This is slightly above the 10-year average for number of fires on the district, however it is below average for the number of acres burned.

“The precipitation we’ve recently received has been a welcome change from the long dry summer. While this precipitation has greatly reduced fire danger in the region, light fuels, such as grass and light brush can dry quickly with warm and windy days. If you are burning debris or slash piles, remember to obtain the necessary permits and follow the smoke management forecast for your area. If weather conditions return to a warmer and drier pattern, we ask that landowners check previously burned piles for lingering heat. These heat sources can cause escaped fires in the right conditions.” Said Matt Howard, Wallowa Unit Forester.

With the termination of fire season, requirements for obtaining a burn permit for residential yard debris burning and burn barrels 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 piles.

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 (CTUIR) requires a permit from CTUIR. You must follow all requirements as outlined in 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 must be reported within 7 days following the burn.

The Northeast Oregon District of the Oregon Department of Forestry would like to thank all of our landowners, forest operators, the public and interagency partners for their efforts in fire prevention,
detection and suppression activities this season.

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.

Fire danger continues to climb, prompting ODF fire managers to raise public use restrictions

La Grande, OR—Fire managers have increased the public use restrictions or Regulated Use Closure on lands protected by Oregon Department of Forestry in northeast Oregon. The indices that fire managers use to measure seasonal fire severity are indicating extreme fire conditions across the region.

Effective at 12:01 a.m. July 27, 2018 the Oregon Department of Forestry (ODF) has added additional restrictions to the Regulated Use Closure for lands within the Northeast Oregon District. The Regulated Use Closure affects private, state, county, municipal, and tribal lands in seven counties: Union, Baker, Wallowa, Umatilla and small portions of Malheur, Grant and Morrow Counties. The Regulated Use Closure is intended to prevent or minimize human-caused wildfires and to protect natural resources and public health and safety.

“With many of the region’s fire resources being committed to other fires across the state, it’s important for us to minimize fire starts to the best of our abilities. These increased restrictions are intended to limit the number of human caused fires in the area.” said Joseph Goebel, Wallowa Wildland Fire Supervisor. So far this year, ODF’s Northeast Oregon District has had 20 human-caused fires that have burned 30.21 acres. Additionally there have been 4 lightning-caused fires that have burned 0.3 acres.

The Regulated Use Closure includes the following fire prevention measures:

• Open fires are prohibited, including campfires, charcoal fires, cooking fires and warming fires, except at designated locations. Designated locations within the Regulated Use Closure area includes, but is not limited to, the following Oregon State Parks: Emigrant Springs, Ukiah Dale, Catherine Creek, Hilgard Junction, Red Bridge, Wallowa Lake, Minam and Unity Lake. Check with Oregon State Parks for additional information regarding fire restrictions on park properties. Portable cooking stoves using liquefied or bottled fuels are allowed.

• Debris burning is prohibited, including the use of burn barrels.

• Chain saw use is prohibited, between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. Chain saw use is permitted at all other hours, if the following firefighting equipment is present with each operating saw: one axe, one shovel, and one 8 ounce or larger fire extinguisher. In addition, a fire watch is required at least one hour following the use of each saw.

• Smoking is prohibited while traveling, except in vehicles on improved roads, in boats on the water, or at a cleared area.

• Use of motor vehicles, including motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), is prohibited except on improved roads, except in the commercial culture and harvest of agricultural crops.

• Cutting, grinding and welding of metal is prohibited, between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.
Cutting, grinding and welding of metal is permitted at all other hours, if conducted in a cleared area and if a water supply is present, unless specifically waived by the State Forester.

• Mowing of dried and cured grass with power driven equipment is prohibited between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.

• Use of fireworks is prohibited.

• Any electric fence controller in use shall be: 1) Listed by a nationally recognized testing laboratory or be certified by the Department of Consumer Business Services; and 2) Operated in compliance with manufacturer’s instructions.

Also prohibited during fire season is the use of exploding targets and tracer ammunition. Sky lanterns are illegal in Oregon.

Citizens are asked to continue to use caution and adhere to regulations. Possession of the following firefighting equipment is strongly encouraged (except on state highway, county roads and driveways): one shovel and one gallon of water, or one 2 ½ pound or larger fire extinguisher.
