The National Weather Service in Salt Lake City has issued a Red Flag Warning for wind and low relative humidity. The high winds and low humidity will create potentially explosive wildfire growth.
Including campfires, cooking fires, or fire pits. Gas barbecues or gas fire rings are okay. Don’t park on dry grass, or discard cigarettes from car windows. Beware of dragging trailer chains. Please be safe.
Record low fuel moisture, widespread drought conditions, and extreme fire danger have prompted the State Fire Management Officer to issue Stage 1 restrictions:
A ban is also in effect on discharge or use of Fireworks in all unincorporated private lands (i.e. Mountain Green and unincorporated Morgan County) as of 9 June.
The Highlands area of Mountain Green is an extreme danger fire zone because of the dense vegetation intermingled closely with homes. Contact MGFPD (email and phone listed in contacts) if you have questions.
Addresses on the following streets (or extension roads & properties from roads on this list north of Old Highway Road) are subject to this Morgan County order:
Change your carbon monoxide (CO) and smoke alarm batteries twice a year and test your system regularly. Many detectors expire after 10 years - some sooner! How old are yours? The date of manufacture is usually printed on the back.
The Mountain Green Fire Protection District is looking for volunteers. If you have Firefighter I/II, EMT/EMR, Wildland or HAZMAT Operations certification that is a plus, but the fire department will train you if you are willing to put in the time and commitment to obtaining these certifications. Volunteers do not work set shifts and provide service as they are available. Please contact Chief Brian Brendel if you can help, please click on the contacts link above.
