BBQ Ban in County Parks

BBQ  ban 

This year has been an extraordinary year of dry weather and drought leading to unprecedented wildfire behavior. As a result, many residents have requested that the County ban campfires. Supervisor Parlin reached out to County staff about this request and was advised that in order to comply with local fire district ordinances, El Dorado County Parks will be removing, covering, or locking all BBQs and placing signage at all parks noting that all fires and use of BBQs is prohibited when burn permits are suspended.

We will continue to collaborate with our local fire districts to determine what further steps will be taken in the future. Thank you to everyone for their interest in this topic and for being firewise.
