ABOUT Central Oregon Fire Management Service: The Central Oregon Fire Management Service (COFMS) area includes the Deschutes National Forest, the Ochoco National Forest, and the Prineville District BLM. These three units are managed cooperatively under combined leadership, with an Interagency Fire Management Officer, two Deputy Fire Management Officers, and other sub-staff functions working for a Board of Directors including Forest Service District Rangers and BLM Field Managers from both agencies. These units work to manage fire, fuels and aviation programs on the public lands throughout Central Oregon. Public lands in Central Oregon are widely scattered. The Prineville BLM district boundary encompasses approximately 12.7 million acres between the Columbia River to the north, south of the town of Crescent in Klamath County to the south, the Cascade crest on the west, and near the town of John Day at the eastern boundary. Within that broad area, the two forests and BLM holdings total over 4 million acres. COFMS is divided into five divisions, each managed by a Fire Management Officer. Dispatching is managed by the Central Oregon Interagency Dispatch Center, which also includes functions for the Oregon Department of Forestry’s Prineville Unit. COFMS fire resources include engine crews, hand crews, water tenders, prevention units, lookouts, and an interagency Rappel program.
