High Fire Danger

With multiple wildfires burning throughout the state and hot, dry weather conditions continuing in the forecast, state fire officials are warning residents about increased fire danger. Many forest preserves and outdoor recreation areas have banned campfires and other open flames, while fire protection districts have also implemented extensive fire restrictions.

Please use caution when operating grills, smokers, vehicles or any equipment that can emit sparks, flames or extensive heat. If you see smoke or flames please contact your region’s fire department or 911. If you come across burned our downed powerlines or poles, call YVEA at 970-879-1160, and do not attempt to move them yourself. Working together, we can keep our families and communities safe.
