Effective July 24, 2018, at 6:00 p.m., Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Shrader lifted the temporary Stage 2 Fire Ban for Jefferson County and reinstated Stage 1 temporary fire restrictions.

The following activities are prohibited under Stage 1 Fire Restrictions:

  • Building, maintaining, attending, or using any fire or recreational campfire, except a recreational fire within a permanently constructed fire grate in a developed park, campground, private residence, or picnic area.
