Fire Restrictions Reduced on the San Bernardino National Forest, effective October 23

San Bernardino, Calif. October 22, 2009 - With moderate weather across the southland, the San Bernardino National Forest will reduce fire restrictions on the forest effective Friday, October 23.

Under the reduced fire restrictions, wood and charcoal fires will once again be allowed in agency-provided campfire rings at designated campgrounds and picnic areas and sites operated under special use permits.

“With the milder weather, I want to remind folks to continue to be fire safe and vigilant year-round,” said Forest Supervisor Jeanne Wade Evans.

Current fire restriction and guidelines in effect on the San Bernardino National Forest are as
follows:
  • Wood and charcoal campfires are allowed only in developed campgrounds and picnic areas, within agency-provided fire rings or designated stoves.
  • Wood and charcoal campfires are not permitted in Yellow Post campsites.
  • Campfire permits are required for propane and gas stoves and lanterns used outside of developed recreation sites.
  • Recreational shooting is limited to public shooting ranges operated under special use permit only, except those engaged in legal hunting.
  • An approved spark arrester is required for any internal combustion engine operated on designated forest routes. These include chainsaws, generators, motorcycles, and off-highway vehicles.
  • Smoking is limited to enclosed vehicles and developed recreation sites.
  • Fireworks are always prohibited on the San Bernardino National Forest. Tracer, armor piercing, steel core, and Teflon ammunitions are also prohibited, as is discharging a firearm at any exploding target.

Forest visitors are encouraged to “Know Before You Go” and call ahead to the local anger Station to check on location conditions and restrictions.
