Help Prevent Wildfires

Wildfire Updates

It’s essential to get out in Arizona and explore, but doing so safely is the number one priority. Campfire and smoking restrictions are in place at many recreational areas on public lands statewide, including all six national forests in Arizona.

Fire Restrictions

The Forest Service, along with other federal, state and local partners, implement restrictions as a precautionary measure to protect public health and safety and to reduce preventable human-caused fires.

Never leave a campfire unattended, fully extinguish your campfire—it should be cold to the touch—and dispose of cigarettes in your vehicle's ashtray. Public land managers urge the public to be careful with fires and to know if the area they plan to visit is under any fire restrictions.

Up-to-date Information and Available Resources

In the event of a wildfire emergency, dial 911. Your call will be received by a safety dispatch officer and handled by the appropriate emergency personnel.
