Currently, a statewide burn ban is on all forestland under DNR's fire protection.
We are Washington state's largest on-call fire department. Our 1,500 permanent and temporary employees fight fires on more than 13 million acres of private and state-owned forest lands. Our fire protection and safety equipment requirements help your local fire district respond to wildfires. We also work with the National Weather Service to provide the fire weather forecasts and fire precaution levels for you, the firefighters, forest landowners, and the forest industry.
