Wildfires and Smoke Can Affect All Oregonians

Wildfire
and smoke can affect all Oregonians, no matter where you live. Rapidly changing
weather patterns, like high winds, can have wide ranging and unpredictable
impacts on wildfires. Whether you are staying home or travelling, it’s
important to know how to keep you and your loved ones safe.

To
ensure all Oregonians remain safe during wildfire season, we urge everyone to
stay tuned into these communications channels and follow all official safety guidelines
related to air quality and recreation:

Northwest
Interagency Coordination Center

interactive map is updated daily with current fire perimeters and
locations. This website acts as the wildfire resource coordination center
for Bureau of Land Management, US Forest Service, Oregon Dept of Forestry, US
Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Indian Affairs, Washington Dept. of
Natural Resources and the National Park Service.

InciWeb the Incident Information System: The federal interagency all-risk incident information
management system provides an interactive map with real time location

emergency.

InciWeb, National Interagency Fire Center, Northwest Interagency Coordination
Center, Oregon Office of Emergency Management, NOAA into an easy to use map

time map and cell phone application you can use to track air quality, including
wildfire smoke impacts, across the state. Check your app store for OregonAir.
