Due to high fire danger, the City of Glenwood Springs issues an administrative order temporarily prohibiting the private use, sale, and possession of fireworks effective 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, June 25. This Administrative Order shall be in effect until November 1, 2022 unless otherwise terminated or extended by the City Manager or City Council.
The City Manager, in consultation with the Fire Chief and County Sheriff, finds that there is high fire danger due to current conditions including low fuel moisture, low humidity, warm temperatures and gusty winds. The National Weather Service has issued many red flag warnings in June for Western Colorado and Eastern Utah due to these critical fire weather conditions.
Section 110.020.180 of the Glenwood Springs Municipal Code authorizes the City Manager, whenever they find that there is high fire danger, to impose a fire restriction and/or ban for such periods of time and under such actions as deemed necessary.
Additionally, a prohibition on firework use, possession, and sale in unincorporated Garfield County has been extended to include June 20 through July 5 and is effective through April 2023 due to severe drought conditions in the area.
