Douglas Forest Protective Association


The Douglas Forest Protective Association was formed in 1912 and provides wildfire prevention, detection, and suppression on 1.6 million acres of private, county, state, Bureau of Land Management, and Bureau of Indian Affairs lands within the Douglas District.

Historically, DFPA suppresses about 100 fires annually, collectively burning approximately 4,000 acres.  Human-caused fires account for roughly 75% of all wildfires within the Douglas District, with the two leading causes related to equipment use and debris burning.
