Lifting Partial Fire Restrictions Imposed 6-21-2021

Upon the recommendation of the Sheridan County Fire Warden and the Fire Chiefs of the Rural Fire Protection Districts, the Sheridan County Commissioners have rescinded Resolution 21-06-011 which lifts the Partial Fire Restrictions imposed on June 21, 2021.  Effective immediately open burning will be allowed in Sheridan County.

The public is urged to be very cautious with any open burning in the County.  Grass and other light fuels can dry quickly if the weather warms up or the winds blows, making for high fire danger.

Prior to any planned burning prior please; Notify the Dispatch Center at 307-672-2413 so the fire department doesn’t show up uninvited; Check the weather forecast for warnings and if increased winds are predicted, avoid burning prior and during that time; Have fire tools, water, and a phone readily available; and Do not delay calling for help if your burn gets out of hand, as early response can minimize control efforts and potential damage.
