Before you burn

Before lighting a fire ensure you are properly prepared, aware of the conditions and following open burning regulations:

Establish a fuel break around your burn or fire guard around your campfire.

Ensure someone is always monitoring the fire so it doesn’t spread beyond its intended size. At least one person equipped with a fire-fighting hand tool must monitor the fire at all times.
Do not burn when venting conditions are “Poor” or “Fair

The Emergency Notification Team will be initiating the yearly test of the Emergency Notification System at 9:30 AM on 15 April 2023 to all Anarchist Mtn and Sidley Mtn residents’ phone numbers that have been submitted.

The automated system also provides the results of the test by identifying if the call was picked up, a message was left, or no answer. As such, we will have the results of the test very quickly and the ENPrep team will notify the Area leads.
