Welcome to the official internet home of the BLACK FOREST fire/rescue protection district 


Fire Ban Info

Effective this date 8/16/2016

The county wide stage 1 fire restrictions that have been in effect have now been lifted.

Keep in mind

We request you contact your local Fire Protection District before engaging in any open burning that has

been allowed in the past. Our county has various topographical features where some terrain may

experience large amounts of moisture but other portions remain dry and may have a higher risk of fire.

A few of the Fire Districts out east along the County Border particularly, request that you remain

extremely cautious with the use any flame producing device and or fire.

While the restrictions have been lifted, we continue to stress using caution when using any open fire

and or flame producing devices. Always keep a safe area for their use and make sure you keep fire

suppression items available.

Thank you for your support!

If you need us, can we find you?

Many Black Forest homes have no house numbers or numbers that are hard to see, especially in rain, snow, or smoke. If you need to improve your numbers, you can get these simple high-visibility house number signs at Station One.

The numbers are 4 inches tall, reflective, and installed on both sides of the post. They are designed to take an impact of over 60 MPH and bounce back. The cost is $25.00, installed. If you lost your home in the Black Forest Fire, your sign is FREE, and we will install it for you. Order your sign by calling Station One at 495-4300, or stop in to sign up. Payment can be made at the station or arrangements can be made to collect on installment at the home (exact amount please).

These number signs are not required but can help our members find you quickly when minutes matter.
