BWFR continues to monitor the developments of the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and adhere to the advisories and directions of the CDC and public health officials in Colorado.

As of June 1st, our administrative staff has resumed normal office hours with precautions in place in an effort to prevent the spread of disease. For your own safety and the safety of other citizens and BWFR staff, please observe the following: 
  • If you need to visit our office, it is recommended that you call ahead to ensure the person you want to meet with is available, which will help to reduce unnecessary visits to the office.
  • Please observe social distancing guidelines by keeping a minimum of 6 feet of clearance between you and others.
  • Masks or face coverings should be worn to visit the office and while interacting with our staff; we will also be donning masks or other PPE as appropriate when interacting with the public. 
We will continue to monitor the situation and make determinations regarding operations, as needed. Our emergency personnel are on duty 24/7 and are always ready to assist during an emergency. In the case of an emergency, please call 911.

Open Burning Information

The open burn period is currently ACTIVE. The burning period runs from April 1st - October 31st, and requires a valid (current year only-not expired) and approved CDPHE permit be obtained prior to open burning. Fire department notification and approval is required for all burning activity, even if the activity is permit exempt.

BURN RESTRICTIONS: The open burning season is active, however, a BURN BAN is currently in place. Due to continuing concerns with the COVID-19 pandemic and its associated threat to people with heart and/or lung disease, as well as allocation of emergency resources, burning is not presently being approved. 

If you would like to conduct an open burn and reside within the boundaries of BWFR, you can find information on proper burning procedures, permit application, and some general FAQ's by clicking HERE
