On June 26, 2012, the Board of County Commissioners voted to adopt Ordinance No. 2012-1 presented by Sheriff Jim Beicker. The Ordinance outlines the various restrictions and exceptions of each fire ban level.
Please always check with your local fire districts, and state agencies (BLM and Forest Service), to make sure they do not have any fire ban restrictions in effect.
Always use caution while recreational cooking or burning of any sort and consider the surrounding vegetation and weather conditions.
At the October 25th, 2016 meeting of the Board of Commissioners, Stage 1 Fire Restrictions were put into place at the request of Fremont County Sheriff Jim Beicker for the unincorporated areas of Fremont County. To review prohibitions under Stage 1 Fire Restrictions please review Ordinance 2012-1.
