Don’t forget! Prescott NF Remains in Stage 1 Fire Restrictions over Labor Day Weekend

PRESCOTT, AZ, September 3, 2020 – Prescott National Forest would like to remind weekend visitors that we all have a role to play in preventing human-caused fires, and that the forest is still in Stage 1 Fire Restrictions.

Stage I Fire Restrictions went into effect on Friday, August 14th and prohibit the following on all Prescott National Forest lands:

  • Building, maintaining, attending or using a fire, campfire, charcoal, coal, or wood stove, except in developed recreation sites with metal fire rings or cooking grills. Forest visitors are urged to reference the Prescott National Forest website for a list of developed recreation sites allowing campfires under Stage I Fire Restrictions (https://www.fs.usda.gov/prescott).  
  • Smoking, except within an enclosed vehicle or building, or in a developed recreation site in an area at least three feet in diameter that is barren or cleared of all flammable materials.
  • Discharging a firearm, air rifle, or gas gun; except while engaged in a lawful hunt pursuant to state, federal laws and regulations.

Several forests in Arizona are still in fire restrictions.  Know before you go. Check current fire information and restrictions at www.firerestrictions.us  or call 1-877-864-6985.

All Prescott NF offices will be closed on Monday, September 7th, in observance of Labor Day.  Forest offices will resume virtual business hours on Tuesday, September 8th.
