Fire Danger


It is that time of year again, when communities must monitor the fire danger index for the region. It is critical that you verify current restrictions before burning or participating in outdoor activities as conditions may develop throughout the day, such as issuance of a Red Flag Warning, that results in a change in restriction status. Within the City of Emerado, a permit is REQUIRED for recreational burning, such as campfires. Contact City Hall to obtian your burn permit. When the fire danger, monitored by City, Police and Fire Officials reaches HIGH or above, we ask that you refrain from any form of burning to prevent disasters. For more information, or any further questions, don't hesitate to reach out to City Hall, or even the Fire Department for questions! You can easily find the DAILY UPDATES on the fire danger here at:
