The Department of Natural Resources’ (DNR) Wildland Fire Management Division is actively seeking a Fire Intelligence Coordinator to work at a statewide scope and scale in the Plans and Information Section, while assisting in the regional intelligence activities for Oregon and Washington. The position is unique in that it will be located in Portland, OR in partnership with the Northwest Coordination Center. The office is in downtown Portland, near Portland State University. The successful candidate could work anywhere near Portland, so the beauty of NW Oregon or SW Washington would be an ideal location for anyone to settle. There are many outdoor activities that come with living in the Pacific Northwest: kayaking, sailing, paddle-boarding, hiking, running, and biking; you are central to the coasts of Oregon and Washington, as well as central to many of the mountains in the Cascade range (Mt. Hood, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Rainier). The region has a warm-summer, Mediterranean climate and averages 30-50 inches of precipitation annually, depending on where the candidate chose to live.

This position resides under the Wildland Fire Management Division (WFMD), Plans and Information Section, and will provide professional and technical expertise in the collection and analysis of fire intelligence and the wildfire environment to provide sound decision support and guidance to fire managers with respect to historical, current, and projected fire activity, fire danger conditions, and risk. General duty areas include Fire Intelligence: Information Analysis and Decision Support; Fire Environment: Analysis and Risk Assessment; GIS; and Other Duties as Assigned. These activities are in direct support of the agency’s wildland fire protection system, and incorporates regional statistical information into any reporting or analysis that might also impact DNR. The person in this position may work independently as well as part of temporary teams or projects (including acting as team or project leader.)
