City Club: How Wildfire Decisions are Made

June 20 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

The focus of this forum is to discuss how decisions are made to fight a wildfire when they start. Particularly, how decisions differ based on the area and/or type of land where they start: wilderness, urban interface, grasslands and tribal lands.

  • What agencies are involved and how do they coordinate?
  • What are decision-making points for fire managers?
  • Where does funding come from?
  • Why do some fires receive massive resources and others do not?


  • Kevin Moriarty,  Deschutes County Forester
  • Shawn Jaca, Central Oregon Fire Management, US Forest Service
  • Trey Leonard, Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs
  • James Osborne, Central Oregon Fire Management, BLM

Moderated by: Jessica Neujahr, Oregon Dept of Forestry

A feature story on the topic will appear in the June 16 issue of The Bulletin.
