Inyo National Forest Fire & Aviation Management
Welcome to the Inyo National Forest Fire Management Page.
The Inyo National Forest and BLM-Bishop Field Office have an Interagency Fire Organization stretching from the southern Sierra near Ridgecrest to Topaz Lake on the Nevada border and from the crest of the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the White Mountains of California and Nevada.
Covering over 2 million acres, we work together to manage the wildfires in this area, keep the public safe and natural resources protected. Using a combination of tools, including fire suppression, fire prevention and fuels management, we can enhance the protection of forest resources, homes and adjacent wildlands.
