Public Service Announcement

 PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT - (October 29, 2015)

 
(LARAMIE, Wyo.)  October 28, 2015 – Cooler weather and snow in the mountains has prompted fire crews to begin preparations for slash pile burning at multiple locations across the Medicine Bow and Routt National Forests in Colorado and Wyoming.

Hundreds of piles are estimated to remain on the two National Forests, even after multiple years of this type of work. Forest users and the public should be aware of and expect to see smoke, as many piles will be burned near communities, travel routes, and popular recreation areas. The burning of highly visible piles will be advertised closer to the date of ignition and questions should be directed to your local Ranger District Office.
