Local and National Fire Information Systems

Posted on in category Travel & Adventure

As we move into the heart of summer wildfire season is a reality of the western United States ecosystems. It’s also a reality that wildfires impact our recreation decisions and having easy access to wildfire information is helpful in planning outdoor adventures. So, we have added some great wildfire information links to the website weather pages. Super easy to use, these links give you a quick look at all the wildfires in the U.S.

The Central Oregon Fire Info site is a great local resource and the National Fire Incident Information System lets you drill down to any active wildfire to see the status.

By the way, the fire precaution level was just raised and here is the official notice. Know before you go!

“The fire danger level remains at HIGH in Central Oregon and fire officials and fire officials will raise the Industrial Fire Precaution Level to II 12:01 a.m. on July 3. A Level II or “Partial Hoot Owl” means the use of power saws and equipment maintenance may only happen between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m.”

We hope you find the weather pages a good bookmark for your weather with all the links you need to plan your next outdoor adventure in #backyardbend.
