Goshen County Sheriff

 

*** NOW IN EFFECT *** 

 

GOSHEN COUNTY WILL BE UNDER A PARTIAL FIRE BAN 

NO FIREWORKS DURING THIS TIME

 

A partial fire ban is in effect for Goshen County beginning June 29, 2020.  The relentless winds have dried the abundant grass and weeds to a state of critical volatility.  Grass and weeds are now fuels to feed grassland and property fires.  

While controlled burns are allowed, it may not be advisable.  As the land owner, monitor all available weather forecasts before setting fires.  You are reminded to call Torrington Dispatch Center at 532-7001 to report controlled burns prior to starting and call before you leave the scene. 

You are reminded of your responsibility to keep controlled burns within your prescribed target zone and further reminded not to violate DEQ rules on banned materials.

Since the ban will be in effect prior to the 4th of July, you are specifically reminded that the use of fireworks and explosives are specifically addressed as not allowed with exception of municipally sponsored events in Goshen County.    

Should you have any questions, call the Goshen County Fire Warden's Office at 532-7952.
