Fire Season Keep Up to Date Fire Danger Moderate

A combination of widespread rain and a steady drop in temperatures has made it possible to ease off on some fire prevention regulations in the City of Grants Pass. Effective Sunday, September 19, 2021, at 12:01 a.m., the public fire danger level will decrease to “moderate” (blue) in the City of Grants Pass. 

For public use, restrictions on chain saws, brush cutters, and other power-driven or spark-emitting machinery are being slightly relaxed, allowing the use of equipment until 1:00 p.m. and after 8 p.m.

Open fires are still prohibited during fire season.  This includes campfires, cooking fires, and warming fires.  Smoking in areas of flammable vegetation is also still prohibited.
