OUTDOOR DEBRIS BURNING IS CLOSED!

April 10th, 2020 Comments off

Effective April 10, 2020, Outdoor Debris Burning is Closed!

This action is being prompted by the Deschutes County Fire Chiefs, in coordination with the County Health Department, Oregon Health Authority, DEQ, and Oregon Department of Forestray due to the COVID-19 emergency.

It is not known at this time what impact smoke has on a person’s health with this new respiratory virus.  That concern, coupled with the strong possibility of limited emergency responders available for any escaped burns, has facilitated this decision.

The La Pine Fire District strongly encourages citizens to continue to FireWise homes and properties to protect them from wildfire.
