BLM: Be Careful With Fireworks on July 4th

BLM Rock Cabin Creek
Wyoming Bureau of Land Management

The Bureau of Land Management Wyoming (BLM) is urging residents to be careful when recreating on public lands this July 4th weekend.

BLM Fire Management Officer Kyle Cowan said currently the fire danger ranges from low to moderate throughout the state, but with above average annual moisture, Wyoming has an unprecedented grass crop. He said in a news release that as the grass begins to cure, the potential of large fire growth will exist.

Recreationists need to be aware the BLM places year-round restrictions on public lands along with additional restrictions.

BLM year-round fire restrictions include the following:

No Discharging or using any fireworks

No Discharging a firearm using incendiary or tracer ammunition

No Burning, igniting, or causing to burn any tire, wire, magnesium, or other hazardous or explosive material

No Operating any off-road vehicle on public lands unless the vehicle is equipped with a properly installed spark arrester.

Also, it is important to follow these recommendations:

Make sure campfires are “dead” out

Travel and camp with a shovel, fire extinguisher, and ample water

Attempt to confine smoking within a vehicle or cleared area.
