Safety First

volunteer firefighters in ColoradoHere in Evergreen and the surrounding areas, we are currently under a temporary fire ban. Because of continuing high fire danger conditions, certain activities are prohibited, including anything which produces an open flame or has the potential to create an uncontrolled fire. This includes grilling outside. Charcoal grills and open fires are completely forbidden on both private and public land. It is safe to cook on a gas-fueled stove, but always make decisions that keep you and your family safe. The Sheriff’s Department recommends that if we use a gas grill, we take adequate measures to prevent uncontrolled fires, such as, having containers of adequate water or dry soil, shovels, fire extinguishers, or other extinguishing agents nearby. We want everyone to enjoy the Rocky Mountain spring, but always keep safety at the forefront.
