OTHER FIRE NEWS

Wildland Firefighter Safety

Washington State is the first among states begin developing wildfire smoke worker-safety rules. Check out the story on !Fiberone News Radio.

National Preparedness Level

The National Preparedness is at a Level 2 due to increased fire activity and potential for new fires in numerous geographic areas, increased resource and incident management team and resource commitments (for COVID).

Northwest Weather Forecast

he broad upper-level trough over the West will weaken and shift eastward over the weekend but will bring snow to portions of the Intermountain West into tomorrow before exiting the region. Upper-level ridging will build into the West before another upper low slides southeast from Alaska along the Pacific Coast before broadening over the West early next week.

Due to the trajectory of this upper low, precipitation will likely be confined to the Coast Ranges of Oregon and Washington, Cascades, and northern and central Rockies early to mid-next week. 

Current Fire Stats (2021)

From January 1st through March 26, 2021, there have been 9,230 wildfires for a total of 226,826 acres. (Nationally, speaking).
