Worland Field Manager Becky Spurgin is grateful to everyone for their cooperation and vigilance. “Firefighters have had their hands full during this extremely dry year,” said Spurgin. “Without the public’s adherence to the fire restrictions, it’s likely there would have been more fires.”
Cooler temperatures and increased moisture have helped improve conditions so that the following activities can resume on BLM-administered public lands:
- Building, maintaining, attending or using a fire or campfire.
- Operating a chainsaw.
- Using an arc or gas welder or acetylene or other torch.
- Discharging or using fireworks.
- Discharging a firearm using incendiary or tracer ammunition.
- Burning or igniting tires, wires, magnesium, or other hazardous or explosive material.
- Operating an off-road vehicle unless it is equipped with a properly installed spark arrester.
