Fire Restrictions & Bans

Western US
Back to Top
Fire restrictions can be difficult to understand and often vary across the US. Fire restrictions can be issued by State authorities like State Parks and Forests, Federal authorities like National Parks, National Forests, and Bureau of Land Management (BLM), or even inter-agency task forces that cover multiple regions.

Always check a few sources before assuming you're in the clear. Remember, restrictions can be called different things depending on where you are including "burn bans", "fire ban", "red flags", or "alerts."
