restrictions for state of Idaho
As of Friday, July 20, a Stage 1 Fire Restriction prohibited the following acts on all state and private lands within the state of Idaho until the order is rescinded. This is due to a very high fire danger within the state.
1. Building, maintaining, attending or using a fire or campfire unless noted in the exemptions.
2. Smoking, except within an enclosed vehicle or building, a developed recreation site or while stopped in an area at least three feet in diameter that is barren or cleared of all flammable materials.
1. Persons with a written permit that specifically authorizes the otherwise prohibited act.
2. Persons using a fire solely fueled by liquid petroleum or LPG fuels.
3. Persons conducting activities in those designated areas where the activity is specifically authorized by written posted notice.
4. Any Federal, State or local officer or member of an organized rescue or firefighting force in the performance of an official duty.
5. All land within a city boundary is exempted.
6. Other exemptions.
The order was signed by George Bacon, Director of the Idaho Department of Lands under the authority vested in him under Section 38-115, Idaho Code, and the Rules and Regulations Pertaining to Forest Fire Protection.
