Fire and Emergency Info
La Plata County Emergency Management works with multiple partners, as a collaborative effort, a group of professionals meet biweekly to determine the need to implement fire restrictions. The coordinating group may meet more frequent than biweekly depending on weather and drought conditions. Ensure that you and your family as well as neighbors, are signed up for CodeRED to receive evacuation notices and other updates via cell phone or email: http://bit.ly/CodeRed_signup.
La Plata County officials coordinate with federal, state, tribal and our local fire districts on fire restrictions. Currently we do not have fire restrictions in place (5/19/2021).
