“Residents and visitors are reminded they can be held legally responsible for causing any fire that escapes control and causes damage. Remember to use caution when using equipment or items that can spark a fire. Never use gasoline or other flammable liquids to start a fire.”
“SEDONA – (July 15, 2021) – Sedona Fire District (SFD) will lift all fire restrictions previously in effect for all portions of the fire district effective Friday, July 16, 2021, at 06:00 am. This move is in coordination with Coconino County, Coconino National Forest, and Kaibab National Forest. Areas outside of Sedona Fire District boundaries within Yavapai County are still subject to Staged Fire Restrictions per the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors. ‘The metrics that we use to determine fire restrictions and fire danger ratings are based on the National Fire Danger Rating System (NFRDS). Right now the NFRDS is showing that we are trending towards a more moderate fire danger level,’ said Sedona Fire Marshal Jon Davis.”

🔥 Fire Marshal Jon Davis informed the June Big Park Regional Coordinating Council that effective Friday, June 11th, 2021 at 8:00 a.m. Sedona Fire District (SFD) is in Stage II Fire Restrictions. These restrictions prohibit all solid-fueled open fires, fire pits, and campfires. He emphasized using extreme caution and expressed hope that an earlier, wetter monsoon season would alleviate the danger. Jon explained that “Firewise” landscaping does not mean removing all trees and shrubbery; rather that it involves creating more of a park-like setting with islands of vegetation. Unbroken lines of plants up to a dwelling should be avoided and he stressed the need for horizontal and vertical separation; so as not to encourage ladder fuels.
Please be on the lookout for visitors who may not be aware of the extreme fire danger in our area. If you observe someone not observing the restrictions, contact the Sedona Fire District immediately.
Please contact the Sedona Fire District Community Risk Reduction Division at 928-204-8926 if you have any questions.
