Since 1995, the BLM has been integrated with the USDA Forest Service for fire and aviation management. Here in the Pacific Northwest, our fire program is managed cooperatively between the two agencies and in close collaboration with the Pacific Northwest Wildfire Coordinating Group, an interagency group including the five federal wildland fire agencies, two state forestry agencies, and two state fire marshal associations. The interagency jurisdiction covers both Oregon and Washington and includes 10 BLM districts, 19 National Forests, and the Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area. By working cooperatively, the agencies can administer fire, fuels and aviation programs in a manner that eliminates duplication, increases program efficiency, and capitalizes on the expertise of each agency's personnel.
