Stage 1 Fire Restrictions in Place Featured

Stage 1 Fire Restrictions in Place Lynne LaMaster

Stage 1 Fire Restrictions in Place Beginning Friday, May 14

Big Idea

  • Stage 1 Fire Restrictions are in place across much of Northern Arizona
  • Yavapai County, Prescott, CAFMA, Prescott National Forest are all coordinating in these restrictions
  • State lands within all but five southeastern AZ counties are also under Stage 1 restrictions
  • National Forests are likely under some sort of Stage 1 restrictions
  •


Stage 1 Fire Restrictions go into place for much of Arizona

You’re safest if you assume your Arizona location is under Stage 1 fire restrictions. If it’s not the fire district, it might be your city or town. It could be in the forest, or on state lands. But, nobody wants a fire in their jurisdiction.
