Elbert County, CO – May 23, 2013
Elbert County moves to Stage 1 burn restriction with improved moisture levels May 23, 2013.
Elbert County Sheriff Shayne Heap and the Elbert County Fire Chiefs Association recommend and supported the decrease to Stage 1 with the new and sustained moisture in our local area.
Elbert County Sheriff Shayne Heap and the Elbert County Fire Chiefs Association evaluated the current conditions and agreed a change was warranted in the current burn ban. The official recommendation was to reduce the current burn restriction from Stage 2 to Stage 1. Sheriff Shayne Heap signed an executive order making the reduction effective immediately.
Officials remind the community that with today’s reduction, Elbert County is not removed from the potential for fire danger and that burning still requires permit from your local fire authority or district. Residents must obtain the proper fire permitting with your local Fire Protection District to burn at your home or business. Stage I prohibits burning without approved permitting and excepts the use or sale of fireworks and educational rockets in compliance with state and local regulations. The restriction does allow for charcoal grills, approved portable outdoor fireplaces (with permit), welding and hot work. Contact the Elbert County Emergency Management office or your local Fire Department with related questions on any outdoor burning requirements.
