Los Alamos County Enters Baseline Fire Restrictions Effective immediately

on July 19, 2018 - 10:41am

LAFD News:

Los Alamos County is dropping from Stage I Fire Restrictions to Baseline Fire Restrictions effective immediately.

Los Alamos County has seen some much-needed relief with the extreme drought conditions that led to the strict Fire Restrictions. Several criteria are used to determine when to implement fire restrictions, including current and predicted weather, as well as fuel moistures. Los Alamos County Fire Department asks that everyone please continue to use extreme caution and practice fire safety.

Los Alamos County Fire Department urges the public to take every precaution necessary on all properties to prevent a fire. 

Baseline Restrictions:

  • Fireworks and incendiary devices are never allowed on federal public lands;
  • Outdoor burning on public land in Los Alamos County is only allowed in approved fire rings at Camp May Campground; and
  • National Parks, Monuments, Preserves and Wildlife Refuges host year-round fire restrictions. Contact Bandelier National Park and Valles Caldera if you plan to visit for specific restrictions. 

Follow the USFS and NM State Forestry Restrictions when outside of the municipality of Los Alamos. Visit www.nmforestry.com or https://firerestrictions.us/ for more information.
