Stage 2 Burn Ban in Effect

Under a Stage 2 burn ban, all outdoor fires are prohibited and no open burning is allowed. All outdoor burning permits remain suspended, recreational fires are prohibited, and only propane or natural gas-fueled cooking fires are allowed.  

Dispose of smoking materials properly. Secure trailer chains to prevent sparks. Practice fire-safe target shooting (where target shooting is allowed).  Defer mowing until conditions improve.
