Wallowa County Smoke Management
Community Response Plan
In the winter of 2021, Wallowa County completed its Smoke Management Community Response Plan with grant
funding from the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). The community response plan will help
protect the health of people in Wallowa County from smoke impacts, while building wildfire resilience through
prescribed burning. The county’s plan followed recommendations from DEQ and the Oregon Department of Forestry
(ODF) and complies with OAR 629-048-0180. The plan also addresses the Smoke Sensitive Receptor Area (SSRA), a
status of its capital city of Enterprise – a community that experiences smoke events – as described in OAR 629-048-
The City of Enterprise, in conjunction with Wallowa County, has approved this Wallowa County Smoke
Management Community Response Plan (hereto referred to as the Wallowa County SMCRP), consistent with OAR
629-048-0180. The Oregon Department of Forestry and the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality have
recommended that communities that are Smoke Sensitive Receptor Areas and have experienced repeated smoke
events and/or intrusions in the past, collaboratively develop a community response plan (CRP) and program.
Enterprise is considered an SSRA, under OAR 629-048-0140. Therefore, the intent of this SMCRP is to fulfill that
need for the City of Enterprise, as well as to address planned smoke events for the remainder of Wallowa County.
