MOAB, Utah-The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Canyon Country Fire District is asking for everyone's cooperation in preventing wildfires this season. The heat of summer is here, which has led to drier conditions, especially at lower elevations and in our river recreation areas. Here are some general safety tips that can help prevent wildfire, keep families safe, protect resources, and not put fire fighters lives at unnecessary risk.
Public lands provide valuable, tangible goods, and materials we rely on and use every day to heat our homes, build our roads, and feed our families. They provide an amazing array of recreational opportunities and connect us to our shared American history and cultural heritage. Please practice good stewardship and take care of your public lands.
For further information, please contact the BLM Field Office (435) 259-2100 and ask for Leanard Garcia or Clark Maughan. Persons who use a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD) may call the Federal Relay Service (FRS) at 1-800-877-8339 to contact the above individual during normal business hours. The FRS is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to leave a message or question with the above individual. Replies are provided during normal business hours.
