Wildland Fire & Firebreaks
In cooperation with fire departments and other first responders across the state, OKIE811 will process emergency notices to members during an incident of imminent danger to underground facilities posed by wildland fire and firebreaks.
When there is a wildland fire incident taking place in a particular county, it is expected that local fire departments will contact OKIE811 to report the wildland fire.
We will also use the emergency notice to members for firebreaks in an unplanned emergency situation in conjunction with a wildland fire. This process allows the onsite contact to coordinate with the member companies in determining the best location for the firebreaks.
Below is a sample ticket showing the information that will be required to setup the emergency notice to members:
