Central Oregon Interagency Dispatch Center

COIDC We Shall Never Forget


The Central Oregon Interagency Dispatch Center (COIDC) was established through a partnership agreement in the spring of 1996. The Central Oregon fire management agencies supported by COIDC protect 4.5 million acres of public and private land covering a geographic area of 9.5 million acres, and averaging over 300 fires per year.

COIDC Interagency Partners:

Oregon Department of Forestry - Prineville/Sisters Units
Central Oregon District's Prineville/Sisters Unit protects approximately 450,000 acres of privately owned forestland in Crook, Deschutes, and Jefferson counties. Regulations within the "Prineville / Sisters Unit" apply in all three counties.

Bureau of Land Management - Prineville District
The Prineville District consists of over 1.65 million acres of public lands. These lands are scattered throughout central Oregon, south from The Dalles to the high desert, west to Sisters, and east to the Grant/Harney County line. The Crooked, Deschutes, White, and John Day Rivers make up over 385 miles of wild and scenic river in the District. Riparian improvement, grazing management, and steelhead and salmon habitat improvement are some of the primary management emphases.

USDA Forest Service - Deschutes and Ochoco National Forests, and the Crooked River National Grassland
The Deschutes and Ochoco National Forests along with the Crooked River National Grassland encompass just over 2.5 million acres of Central Oregon. These public lands extend about 100 miles along the east side of the Cascade Mountains crest and eastward into the Ochoco Mountains. They are rich in human and natural history and radiate variety offering a multitude of diverse scenic and recreation opportunities. Alpine forests and lush meadows, sparkling lakes and scenic rivers, dense evergreen forests, and lava caves are contained within the spectacular snow-capped volcanic peaks of the Cascade Mountain Range to the west and high desert to the east. Newberry National Volcanic Monument offers an up close and personal look at volcanoes and is home to the endangered pumice grape fern.
