Burning Ban Restrictions

4/23/2020

State Forester Thomas Claeys said, “With this year’s spring wildfire season coinciding with the COVID-19 pandemic and emergency response, the North Dakota Forest Service and state agencies are working to reduce additional risks and stressors on an already taxed emergency response network. We ask residents to consider the safety of all North Dakotans.  Preventing wildfire helps limit the number of emergency responses which keeps first responders focused on critical public services.”
