Grand County Stage 1 Fire Restrictions

Grand County will be in a Stage 1 Fire Restriction effective June 28th at 4pm.

The following acts are prohibited:

Building, maintaining, attending, or using a fire or campfire except within a developed recreation site, or improved site. 36 CFR 261.52(a).

Smoking, except within an enclosed vehicle or building, a developed recreation site or while stopped in an area at least three feet in diameter that is barren or cleared of all flammable materials. 36 CFR 261.52(d).

Operating or using any internal or external combustion engine without a spark-arresting device properly installed, maintained, and in effective working order.

The Grand County Sheriff's Office has more information regarding the restrictions. You can hear the recording by calling the Grand County Hazard Information Recording at 970-725-3852
