Welcome to the Pacific Northwest National Fire Plan Website, serving Oregon and Washington
In the Pacific Northwest, the National Fire Plan (NFP) is being successfully implemented under the direction of the Pacific Northwest Wildfire Coordinating Group (PNWCG). PNWCG is an interagency group including the five federal wildland fire agencies, two state forestry agencies, and two state fire marshal associations. This interagency and intergovernmental group of local, state, and federal agencies are working cooperatively to reduce wildfire risk and restore fire-adapted ecosystems.
This site was developed to provide key partners, communities, and local citizens information on NFP projects in Oregon and Washington. Accomplishment reports, the NFP grant application process, NFP implementation strategies, and community partner information can all be found on this website.
What is the National Fire Plan?
In 2001, Congress approved funds for federal and state agencies and local communities to better plan and prepare for future wildfire seasons. The result of that planning and preparation is known as the National Fire Plan. The goals of the National Fire Plan are to ensure sufficient firefighting resources for the future, to rehabilitate and restore fire-damaged ecosystems, to reduce fuels (combustible forest materials) in forests and rangelands at risk, especially near communities, and to work with local residents to reduce fire risk and to improve fire protection.
