Wildland Fire Information
Every year, nearly 9 out of 10 wildland fires are started by humans. You can do your part in preventing large fires by being a responsible camper and always putting out a campfire before leaving. While towing a vehicle be sure that all tow chains are secure and never dragging. You can also help us by cutting back trees on your property, reducing dead fuels, and moving all flammable materials away from your property. By doing your part, you can help us in preventing wildfires.

Know before you go - check fire restrictions and ALWAYS put out a campfire completely before walking away. Drown with water, stir and repeat. Make sure it's cool the touch by checking with your bare hands before leaving.
- Do not park in tall grasses. Grass burns very quickly and under dry, windy conditions, can spread rapidly.
- Be sure all vehicles are in working order before leaving.
- Check your tires
- Do not park on vegetation
- Make sure all chains are secure
- Carry a fire extinguisher
- One Less Spark - One Less Wildfire - a message from the Arizona Department of Transportation
- Before using a lawnmower, check to make sure your yard is free of large rocks. All it takes is one blade to hit a rock and spark a fire.
- Refrain from using any kind of chainsaw or welding equipment during high fire danger.
Fireworks are NEVER allowed on state or federal lands!
Many Arizona cities and towns have restrictions on fire usage. Check with your county BEFORE purchasing or using fireworks. For more information on fireworks you can go to the Office of the State Fire Marshal's page.
