Stage 2 Fire Restrictions

Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue (SSFR) serves the City of Steamboat Springs and the surrounding community by reducing human suffering and property loss, protecting the environment, and promoting life safety through incident response, public education, and fire prevention programs.


SSFR delivers service to the City of Steamboat Springs and the surrounding area which falls under the Steamboat Springs Area Fire Protection District. For additional information on the Steamboat Springs Area Fire Protection District please visit their website.

Under Stage 2, the following acts are prohibited, welding, operating of acetylene or other torch with open flame, or any activity that generates heat or sparks such as grinding. In addition, operating or using any internal combustion engine without a spark arresting device properly installed, maintained and in effective working order is also prohibited.

We understand projects have work to complete but ask for patience as available SSFR resources are allocated on multiple fronts at this point. Conditions remain extremely dry, and all Stage 2 Fire Restrictions should be fully followed.
