Pretty good map of where and what is restricted/closed this season

Just in case anyone isn't already aware, the site above doesn't cover ALL fire restrictions it seems.

www.wrh.noaa.gov/psr/

Red flag warnings issued by the NWS with little to zero warning or notice still apply =(

Red flag warnings are short term based on weather. There is typically plenty of warning or notice just in the local news. If you notice the red flag warnings have expired.

As far as fire restrictions info I still use the link in the first post, works just fine.

Most of Arizona's national forests will impose fire restrictions for the Memorial Day weekend as the state enters the long, dry period before monsoon moisture arrives in early July and the potential for wildfires increases.

The Stage 1 restrictions allow for charcoal and wood fires only at developed campgrounds.

In Southeastern Arizona, where predictions are for a volatile fire season, federal and state land managers coordinated a move to Stage 1 fire restrictions beginning Wednesday at 8 a.m.

The move came as wind and single-digit humidity created red-flag conditions for crews battling a 2,500-acre fire in the Patagonia Mountains.

The Coronado National Forest, which manages the area where the fire is burning, urged visitors to its Sky Island forests to be extremely careful with smoking and campfires as the busy Memorial Day weekend approaches. The Coronado includes heavily visited campsites in the Santa Catalina, Chiricahua and Pinaleño mountains.

Its announcement of fire restrictions was joined by the Gila District of the Bureau of Land Management, Saguaro National Park, Coronado National Memorial, Chiricahua National Monument, Fort Bowie National Historic Site, Tumacacori National Historical Park, and the Arizona State Forestry Division.

In Central and Northern Arizona, the Tonto, Prescott, Kaibab and Coconino national forests announced Stage 1 fire restrictions beginning Wednesday.

Similar restrictions apply to the mostly lower elevation land managed throughout Arizona by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.

The Soldier Basin Fire, the 20th fire to break out in the Coronado National Forest this year and the largest by far, is assumed to be human-caused. There was no lightning in the area, Fidler said.

Forest managers across the state said they are still finding smoldering campfires and want the message about putting them out reinforced.

"Never leave a campfire unattended for any reason, for any purpose, for any amount of time," said Heidi Schewel, spokeswoman for the Coronado National Forest.

"A lot of folks think a little dirt or water is going to take care of it. Make sure it's cold to the touch," she said.

The National Weather Service in Tucson said hot, dry and windy conditions will persist through the weekend.

PROHIBITED

Stage 1 fire restrictions prohibit:

• Building, maintaining, attending, or using a fire, campfire, charcoal, coal, or wood stove other than in a developed campsite or picnic area where grills are provided.

• Smoking, except within an enclosed vehicle or building, a developed recreation site/improved site or while stopped in an area at least 3 feet in diameter that is barren or cleared of all flammable materials.

Fireworks are prohibited year-round on federal lands.

Most, if not all of AZ is now under Stage II fire restrictions. If you're headed out camping, running trails, etc. be aware of what you can/can't do.


The following are prohibited until further notice:
1. Building, maintaining, attending, or using a fire, campfire, charcoal, coal, or wood stove including fires in developed campgrounds or improved sites is prohibited. Exemptions include persons using a device solely fueled by liquid petroleum or LPG fuels that can be turned on and off. Such devices can only be used in an area that is barren or cleared of all overhead and surrounding flammable materials within 3 feet of the device.
2. Smoking is prohibited unless it is within an enclosed vehicle or building.
3. Discharging a firearm except while engaged in a lawful hunt pursuant to state, federal, or tribal laws and regulations is prohibited. The exemption to this is that the discharging of firearms is allowed on agency designated shooting ranges.
4. The discharging or using of any kind of fireworks and incendiary devices is prohibited.
5. The following mechanical and industrial activities are prohibited:
- Operating any internal combustion engine.
- Welding, or operating acetylene or other torch with open flame.
- Using an explosive.

Additional exemptions to the above-listed restrictions include:
1. Any Federal, State, or local officer or member of an organized rescue or firefighting force in the performance of an official duty.
2. Industrial operations where specific operations and exemptions are identified and mitigation measures are implemented as outlined in an agency plan.
3. Operating generators with an approved spark arresting device within an enclosed vehicle or building or in an area that is barren or cleared of all overhead and surrounding flammable materials within three feet of the generator.
4. Operating motorized vehicles on designated roads so long as you park in an area devoid of vegetation within 10 feet of the roadway.

I wasn't surprised by it at all. Just informing the general public since the stricter regulations started yesterday.

Happy 2014. Flagstaff-area forests enact campfire limits

There goes your Big Expedition Bonfire

azdailysun.com/news/lo...963f4.html

Campfire and smoking restrictions will be implemented at 8 a.m. Friday on the Coconino, Kaibab, Prescott and Tonto national forests.

The U.S Forest Service says the restrictions are needed to protect public health and reduce preventable human-caused fires.

On the Kaibab National Forest, restrictions will apply only to the Williams and Tusayan Ranger Districts. Fire restrictions will not yet be implemented on the North Kaibab Ranger District due to different weather and fuels conditions.

Under the restrictions, fires, campfires, charcoal, coal and wood stoves are allowed in developed campgrounds only. The restrictions also limit smoking to within enclosed vehicles or buildings or in developed campgrounds. Using a device that is solely fueled by liquid petroleum or LPG fuels that can be turned on and off is allowed in areas that are clear of flammable materials. Fireworks are always prohibited on all national forest lands.

The restrictions come about a month earlier than last year after an exceptionally dry winter. In 2002, also following a very dry winter, Stage 1 fire restrictions were enacted on April 21.

The Forest Service said in a press release that its criteria include current and predicted weather, fuel moisture, fire activity levels and available firefighting resources. Fire restrictions will remain in effect until the forests receive significant precipitation.

“We are seeing conditions on the forests that warrant going into fire restrictions earlier than usual,” said Coconino National Forest Supervisor Earl Stewart. “We could have a long fire season ahead of us, and we need members of the public to work with us to prevent human-caused starts.”

The city of Flagstaff announced Monday that it will implement the first stage of fire restrictions on Friday, banning open fires citywide and smoking on FUTS trails and disc golf courses.

The restrictions in the city of Flagstaff include a ban on all campfires and fire pits as well as open-flame devices — even those with a spark arrestor — anywhere in the city, not just in city parks. The use of charcoal grills — unlike on the national forest outside campgrounds — is still permitted, as is the use of grilling devices with an ON-OFF switch.

The restrictions also ban smoking on all FUTS trails and disc golf courses at Buffalo Park, Thorpe Park, McPherson Park and McMillan Mesa Park.

Coconino County will also enact fire restrictions at county parks, limiting campfires to developed campgrounds.
