Douglas Forest Protective Association
“The cool overnight and morning temperatures can be very misleading” says DFPA Fire Prevention Specialist Kyle Reed. “With temperatures forecasted into the 80’s through the weekend, the chances of a fire starting and spreading is still very likely.”
DFPA’s modified Regulated Use Closure remains in effect, which means the following restrictions must be followed when recreating on private, county, state or BLM lands.
- Campfires are only allowed in designated campgrounds (see list below)
- The use of fireworks, exploding targets, and tracer ammunition are all prohibited.
Note that when traveling from DFPA protected land onto neighboring ODF or Forest Service lands, fire restrictions may change. Contact the appropriate fire organization for the land you want to recreate on for up to date fire restrictions.
In addition, some private landowners still have additional closures or restrictions in place on their land holdings due to the fire danger. It is recommended to check accessibility before venturing onto private lands.
The Douglas Forest Protective Association protects 1.6 million acres of private, county, state and Bureau of Land Management lands within the Douglas District, and have suppressed 117 fires this year that have burned 113 acres.
