Fire Ban for all County Lands

On June 28, 2018, at 8:00 a.m., Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Shrader ordered a Stage 2 Temporary Fire Ban. This ban applies to all lands in Jefferson County.

The Fire Danger Rating in unincorporated Jefferson County is high. The warmer and drier conditions that are forecast are expected to elevate the rating even higher. In addition, the overall trend of hot and dry weather is expected to continue into next week.

Pursuant to the Annual Operating Plan regarding the implementation of Fire Restrictions and Fire Bans; and due to the continuing high fire danger condition within Jefferson County, based on competent evidence, there are many items that are prohibited during a fire ban.

Please see our Fire Restrictions and Bans web page for all the details.
