Town of Frisco enacts fire and fireworks ban

Due to current fire conditions and forecasted dry weather, the town of Frisco is enacting a Level 1 open fire and fireworks ban pursuant to section 127-11 of the town code. This ban restricts open fires and fireworks, but does not restrict the use of personal barbecue grills. The community’s cooperation is needed and appreciated during this ban.

This ban is effective from noon on July 6 until such a time when fire conditions change and those conditions are confirmed in counsel with the White River National — Dillon Ranger District, the Summit County Sheriff’s Office and local fire rescue districts. The Summit County Board of Commissioners and the towns of Dillon and Silverthorne have also issued Stage 1 fire restrictions banning open fires and fireworks. The town of Dillon has also cancelled their fireworks show scheduled for Saturday, July 8.

The town of Frisco encourages citizens to sign up for the Summit County Alert System and to follow Summit County’s emergency blog for the latest information on the Peak 2 Fire at
