Across Washington's landscapes, DNR works to minimize the destruction that wildfires can cause. The Wildland Fire Management Division provides resources to local fire districts, manages wildfire prevention programs, sets fire precaution levels, and operates Washington state's wildfire fighting force.
DNR oversees activities of private property owners interested in harvesting timber, building or repairing forest roads or culverts, or thinning their forests. These three divisions: Forest Resilience, Forest Regulation and Forest Resources provide resources and monitors compliance to help protect public safety and the environment.
DNR monitors, assess, and informs the public, planners, and municipal officials about the known risks associated with Washington's earthquakes, landslides, and volcanoes to reduce the human and financial costs of natural disasters.
