Wildfires have had devastating effects on Jefferson County. The 2002 Hayman fire burned 138,000 acres, including 42,000 in Jefferson County. Due to the county's geographic makeup, wildfire is always a concern, and it is a more potent threat during droughts or dry spells. There are mitigation steps residents can take to make their homes less susceptible to fire, including removing "slash" (debris from vegetation found in forest areas) from around their homes. In conjunction with fire departments, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office offers remote slash collections for mountain residents.
The Fire Information Hotline is your source for up-to-date news on fire restrictions and bans, slash collections, fireworks regulations and violations, burn permit information and more. Dial 303-271-8200 to be informed.
