Fire Prevention

Douglas County Sheriff David A. Weaver would like to prompt citizens to be aware of the unseasonably warm weather and the threat of Wildfire.

Recently Douglas County has had three brush fires over the past several weeks. Fortunately, because of the fast acting emergency services, the fires were extinguished without injury or loss of property.

At this time no fire restrictions are in place, however we implore all citizens to be responsible and aware. Restrictions are constantly being reviewed and if current conditions continue, restrictions will most likely be imminent.

We are asking for you to be mindful and prepared!

Consider making an emergency evacuation plan to include

Consider your pets and large animals

Consider access and functional needs issues

Sign up for special needs registry. Dcsheriff.net
