The trend of increasingly hot and dry weather has resulted in hazardous fire conditions on the Siuslaw National Forest. In an effort to prevent human-caused wildland fires and to promote fire awareness, forest officials have instituted public use fire restrictions across all areas of the Siuslaw National Forest.

Safety is our number one concern," emphasized Robert Sanchez, Forest Supervisor. “As these weather conditions persist, we feel an increased pressure on our limited resources. High winds have caused damage to hundreds of trees impacting forest roads and campsites. We encourage everyone to limit their travel so that emergency response teams can safely access these areas during this next week."

Assessments of the weather damage to recreation areas and roads will be on going as current conditions and safety measures permit.

Please read the following Press Releases for more information and specifics on the Forest Order.

Stay inside. Stay hydrated. Stay safe.
