ATV Use – Use Responsibly!

The County would encourage ATV owners to act responsibly as it it still dry in some areas of the County.

Many of the fires we have been fighting in the past weeks have been due to sparks from ATV’s.

If ATV use is necessary, riders should be prepared/equipped to put out fires that result from sparks originating from their ATV.

The County would also like to encourage any landowners that had burned brush during the winter season to monitor these areas as many of them have relit due to the windy conditions in the area.

We would also like to thank our four volunteer Fire Departments and the County Public Works staff who have been putting in many hours this week for their dedication and quick response to keep our residents safe and we trust that everyone will take personal responsibility to ensure they comply with this Fire Ban.
