Fire Restrictions

Fire restrictions are put in place by forests to help avoid human-caused wildfires. Because each forest deals with different climates, weather patterns, and moisture contents, each forest sets up its own timeline for when to tighten fire restrictions. Below find all 17 national forest units' current fire restrictions and what they mean for you.
