Industrial Fire Precaution Levels (IFPL)
-A +A

Protection from Wildfire

By law, DNR uses two closure systems to reduce wildfire risk on 13 million acres of private and state forestland protected by the agency. Activated when needed during the summer fire season, one closure system applies to woods workers and other industrial forest users. The other set of protections is aimed at the general public, but also includes local residents, landowners, recreationists and forest workers.

Learn how to follow IFPL in this two-page brochure.

Wood workers are required to observe both sets of restrictions as fire danger dictates. Other land users only need to follow the public use restrictions.
