Fire Season Regulations Still in Effect Despite Rain

It's rainy and cool in southwest Oregon today, but fire season regulations are still in effect. Burning debris piles isn't allowed, and burn barrel use is allowed only if a permit has been obtained beforehand. (Burn barrel use will be completely prohibited starting July 1.) Also, fireworks may not be used in forests and other wildland areas, or in public campgrounds and parks. And target shooting with tracer ammunition or exploding targets is prohibited in all forests and wildland areas.

For more information, see the Dept. of Forestry's fire season regulations web page, or call one of ODF's unit offices:
  • Medford Unit, (541) 664-3328
  • Grants Pass Unit, (541) 474-3152
