The City of Prescott and Yavapai County will enter State 1 fire restrictions at the same time. Please visit their websites at www.cazfire.org or http://www.prescott-az.gov/services/fire/ for further information. 

Stage 1 fire restrictions prohibit the following: 

1. Igniting, building, maintaining, or using a fire, including charcoal and briquettes outside a fire structure that is provided by the Forest Service within a designated area.  

2. Smoking, except within an enclosed vehicle or building, a developed recreation site, or while stopped in an area at least three (3) feet in diameter that is barren or cleared of any flammable  


3. Discharging a firearm, except while engaged in a lawful hunt pursuant to state, federal, or tribal  laws and regulations. 

Using a device that is solely fueled by pressurized liquid petroleum or LPG fuels that can be turned on  and off is allowed in areas that are barren or cleared of all overhead and surrounding flammable  materials within three feet of the device.  

Fire restrictions are implemented to help prevent human-caused fires and to limit the exposure of  visitors during periods of dangerous fire conditions. Decisions about fire restrictions are based on a  combination of carefully measured factors. Criteria used to determine when to implement restrictions  include current and predicted weather, fuel moisture, fire activity levels, enduring drought and available  firefighting resources.  

The public is reminded to always be extra cautious when recreating on public lands, regardless of  restrictions. For information on all Arizona state and federal fire restrictions, including an interactive  map, visit wildlandfire.az.gov/fire-restrictions
