Arizona State Parks and Trails Promotes Fire Safety During Summer Months

Arizona State Parks and Trails Promotes Fire Safety During Summer Months

After the spectacular wildflower season in many of Arizona’s state parks, there will be an increased possibility of wildfires throughout the state during the upcoming dry season. The departments are asking the public to be vigilant and proactive when it comes to fire safety.

Already, Lost Dutchman State Park in Apache Junction has implemented stage one bans in the park, preventing campers from having wood, charcoal, or propane fires or smoking in the park. As the season progresses, other parks will likely implement similar or stricter bans, following protocol of the U.S. Forest Service and the Department of Forestry and Fire.

“It’s vital that everyone know what they can each do to prevent wildfires,” said AZ Department of Forestry and Fire Management Director David Tenney. “Whether camping, using equipment, or even driving, there are tips to keep our lands safe and ensure you are not at risk.

Earlier this year, AZ Department of Forestry and Fire Management released a new mobile app with wildland fire information, fire restriction notifications and details, fire prevention tips, Office of the State Fire Marshal’s plans and payment portal, and forest health-related information. It also allows users to sign up for push alerts that will send notifications of any critical information, such as fires near their area, fire restrictions, even forest health concerns.

Arizona State Parks and Trails keeps updated fire ban information at each of its park pages and a main fire information page at AZStateParks.com. 

“We want our visitors to enjoy the parks safely and responsibly,” said Arizona State Parks and Trails Executive Director Bob Broscheid. “Following the fire ban rules posted for each park and exercising caution when campfires are allowed will ensure that the beauty and adventure of the parks remains available for everyone."

The free mobile application can be found for IOS users on iTunes and Google Play for Android users and by searching Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management.
