WILDLAND FIRE STATISTICS
ODF has been protecting Oregon’s forests for 110 years, and is the largest fire department in Oregon, protecting about 16 million acres of private and public forestland. The department emphasizes the importance of preventing human-caused fires, reducing wildfire risks through improved forest health and resiliency, and keeping those fires that do start as small as possible. This approach protects lives and property and limits fire-related impacts to communities.
These stats are for lands protected by ODF only. The Northwest Interagency Coordination Center shares updated statewide and regional stats daily.
