To report a wildland fire dial 911
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.
For more information regarding the slash events offered by Jefferson County, visit the slash collection website. Contacts for additional information and/or if your local group, HOA, subdivision, fire district would like to host a future collection site:
The Fire Information Hotline is your source for up-to-date news on fire restrictions and bans, fireworks regulations and violations, burn permit information and more. Dial 303-271-8200 to be informed.
