PRESCOTT, AZ (July 14, 2022) – Prescott Fire Department and Central Arizona Fire and Medical Authority (CAFMA), in conjunction with Prescott National Forest and other local area fire agencies, have announced that fire restrictions have lifted effective Friday July 15, 2022 at 8:00 am Arizona time.
Where does this announcement apply?
The 42 square miles of the City of Prescott and the 365 square miles of the Central Arizona Fire and Medical Authority. This includes the Towns of Prescott Valley, Chino Valley, Dewey/Humboldt, Paulden and the areas surrounding the City of Prescott such as Williamson Valley, upper Copper Basin Road and Mountain Club area, Ponderosa Park off of White Spar Road, the Senator Hwy
area of Karen Drive, Sweet Acres, and Oak Knoll Village and finally the areas extending south of Prescott including Govt. Canyon and Diamond Valley.
Why have the restrictions been lifted?
Due to recent moisture, cooler temperatures and a reduction in fire activity the Prescott Fire Department and Central Arizona Fire and Medical Authority are lifting the current fire restrictions for the residents in our communities. This is in conjunction with the Prescott National Forest and other area fire agencies. We may still see days with high winds or elevated fire dangers which may cause no burning for a particular day. We still ask everyone to be extremely careful with fire and please use the ashtrays in your vehicles.
