  • Fire Restrictions and Bans


    Due to the county's geographic makeup, wildfire is always a concern, and it is a more potent threat during droughts or dry spells. Rainfall and cooler temperatures may reduce the danger of wildfire; however, people are encouraged to be vigilant as the danger of fire is always present in the high country. Citizens should use caution when starting and extinguishing campfires, disposing of lighted cigarettes, and other activities that involve the use of fire or sparks. Warm and windy days can quickly lower the fuel moisture content of trees and grasses, making them susceptible to ignition.

    For information regarding Jefferson County fire restrictions, remote slash collection, burn permits, fireworks information and reporting please call 303-271-8200. To be alerted to changes in the fire restrictions and bans via email please join the fire restrictions and bans alert list.
