***BURN BAN OFF***
The fire danger has been rated low by DNR, and in conjunction with Jefferson County Fire Chiefs, I am releasing the burn ban.
As a reminder: All fires must have someone present at all times and with abilities to extinguish the fire quickly.
Fires larger than 4X4 must have a fire permit which is available for purchase by ORCA or DNR.
Burn barrels are illegal. If you have one, you cannot use it. These have been illegal for many years.
Burning trash is also illegal. Please don't do it. Natural vegetation only.
Finally, you are responsible for any costs incurred due to a fire getting out of control and requiring an emergency response from any and all agencies.
Please be fire-wise and safe. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to call.
Established in 1959, the Brinnon Fire Department (JCFD #4) protects approximately 131 square miles of rural Jefferson County, Washington. The district contains vast wilderness including the Olympic National Forest and land managed by the US Forest Service and Department of Natural Resources.
Brinnon is a small rural town with a Post Office, Marina, State Parks, and abundant recreational opportunities from hiking and camping to water activities. We are located along US Highway 101 between Olympia and Port Angeles.
We are a community-based organization focused on helping make the community around us a better place. With the help of our staff and volunteers we organize events and in-depth training sessions for our volunteers.
