Fire Workshops in the Blue Mountains

Forestry Events - 2 hours 51 sec ago
Tuesday, April 28, 2015 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

The purpose of this workshop is to provide an opportunity for woodland owners and others to learn about fire behavior and how it is affected by wind, temperature, humidity, local fuels, and vegetation.  The workshop will cover fire effects such as vegetation successional patterns following a fire, as well as fire prevention treatments that can implemented, and basic firefighting techniques.  We’ll discuss local fire history and how the northeast Oregon/southeast Washington “lightning belt” increases the probability of wildfire ignition and affects wildfire behavior.  Participants will learn how to use fire weather tools on site to evaluate current conditions and understand how microsite conditions like aspect and topography interact with wind, temperature, humidity, and fuels to affect fire behavior.  We will learn what “red flag” conditions mean and what to anticipate and what to plan for.  On hand will be Oregon Department of Forestry, Washington Department of Natural Resources and/or rural fire district personnel to discuss their role in fighting wildland fire and how State regulations and policies concerning fire and fire prevention affect landowners, operators and others.

Bring your own lunch and water and wear adequate foot wear for walking over uneven terrain.  Be prepared for inclement weather and dress accordingly.  We will probably car pool from each classroom location so plan on bringing a high clearance vehicle.
