CLOSURES & RESTRICTIONS

The Regional Forester and Forest Supervisors may issue Special Orders that restrict or close certain areas from public use.

Use the Drop–down menu to go to Special Order pages for each Region 2 national forest or national grassland.

 

FIRES & EMERGENCIES

When Stage 1 fire restrictions are in effect, campfires and charcoal barbeques are allowed ONLY in designated fire grills in Forest Service-developed campgrounds. If you are camping outside of a developed campground, called dispersed camping, during Stage 1 fire restrictions, no open fires are allowed. You may use ONLY propane or white gas stoves.

Check the forest and grassland Web sites for current information on prescribed burns, wildland fires, and/or other fire emergencies. Check the links below for National, State, and County fire restriction information:

  • Colorado State & County Fire Restrictions - Links to Colorado County and National Forest Fire Restriction Web sites.
  • Wyoming State & County Fire Restrictions - Links to Wyoming County and National Forest Fire Restriction Web sites.
  • National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC) - The National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC) in Boise, Idaho is the nation's support center for wildland firefighting.
  • Geospatial Multi-Agency Coordination (GeoMAC) - The Geospatial Multi-Agency Coordination Group is an internet-based mapping application originally designed for fire managers to access online maps of current fire locations. These maps are now available to the general public.
  • InciWeb - Incident Information System - InciWeb is an interagency all-risk incident information management system. The system was developed with two primary missions:
    1. Provide the public a single source of incident related information.
    2. Provide a standardized reporting tool for the Public Affairs community.
    A number of supporting systems automate the delivery of incident information to remote sources. This ensures that the information regarding active incidents is consistent, and the delivery is timely.
