Industrial Fire Precaution Level III Takes Effect July 12th
Industrial operators and other forest workers that are working on lands protected by the Douglas Forest Protective Association will be required to follow stricter fire prevention regulations starting Monday, July 12th, at 12:01 AM when Industrial Fire Precaution Level III (IFPL 3) goes into effect throughout the entire Douglas District. IFPL III requires logging, road building and other industrial operations that utilize power driven machinery in forests and wildland areas to shut down most equipment between the hours of 1:00 PM and 8:00 PM. The increase in industrial fire restrictions is necessary to prevent wildfires as fire danger across the Douglas Districts continues to increase.
A detailed list of activities restricted under IFPL III can be found online at www.oregon.gov/ODF/Fire/Documents/2019%20IFPL.pdf
