🔥 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.
Short-term lodging operators – PLEASE alert your guests and post this information in a highly visible place in your home.
