Fire Management Plan

KRRC’s draft Fire Management Plan (fire plan) was developed to ensure that removal of four lower Klamath River dams – and their reservoirs – will not reduce the ability to effectively fight wildfires in the region. The draft plan, which has been endorsed by California and Oregon fire agencies, lays out new capabilities for early fire detection and firefighting that are not currently available in the Basin.

KRRC submitted the fire plan to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on February 26, 2021 along with several other management documents.
