Sedona Fire District Lifts Fire Restrictions

Sedona FireSedona AZ (July 17, 2013)Sedona Fire District (SFD) Fire Marshal Gary Johnson has advised that fire restrictions in effect since May 23, 2013, will be lifted at 8:00 in the morning on Friday, July 19. 

Recent rains along with higher humidity, increased fuel moisture and the forecast for continuing monsoon activity have lowered but not eliminated fire danger in the fire district. SFD encourages everyone to be responsible when working with or around fire.

Now is a great time to develop and work on making your home Firewise. Here are steps you can take to protect your home from potential wildfire:

  • Reduce flammable vegetation, trees, and brush from around your home.
  • Remove dead trees and prune low-hanging branches.
  • Cut grass and weeds regularly.
  • Relocate wood piles and leftover building materials away from the structures.
  • Keep your roof and yard clean of pine needles, leaves and debris.

For more Firewise information and tips to protect your home or to schedule a free wildfire assessment, contact the Sedona Fire District at (928) 282-6800.
