Fire Restrictions

Fire Season is in effect and the Hoodland Fire District is under a Regulated Closure.  When fire season goes into effect, some activities in the great outdoors are prone to start fires. In an effort to prevent these fires from starting, the Oregon Department of Forestry imposes restrictions pertaining to public and work related activities. 

Be aware of Oregon Department of Forestry Restrictions
