6/19/18: Fire Danger in most of Grand County is MODERATE. No fire restrictions are warranted this week. BLM lands near the Colorado River are currently in Stage 1 restrictions. Call 970-725-3852 for recorded information from the Grand County Sheriff’s Office. Remember, only YOU can prevent wildfires!!
Fire restrictions can originate from many places. Federal agencies such as the US Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and the National Park Service can impose restrictions on the public land they manage. Individual states can impose restrictions on state managed land. Counties may impose bans on private lands within county borders. Confusion can result from the multiple agency jurisdictions, especially when adjacent lands have different restrictions depending on the administering agency.
