Fire Restrictions for Kern County Mountain Parks

The Kern County Fire Department will increase the level of fire restrictions starting today, May 21st, 2013. A very dry winter led to high fire danger much earlier than in previous years.  Continued high temperatures and low moisture have prompted fire officials to increase fire restrictions. Kern County Fire Department officials will keep these restrictions in effect until further notice.

Beginning today, May 21st, no campfires will be allowed anywhere in Greenhorn or Tehachapi Mountain Park. Stoves and lanterns with shut-off valves that use gas, jellied petroleum or pressurized liquid fuel will be allowed only in authorized campsites if the operator possesses a valid California Campfire Permit.  California Campfire Permits can be obtained by visiting any Kern County Fire Station.  When using a stove, remember to clear all flammable material five feet in all directions from the stove, have a shovel available, and ensure that a responsible person attends the stove at all times when in use.

Operating an internal combustion engine outside properly designated roads or trails, welding, and using explosives will all be strictly prohibited during these increased restrictions. If riding a motorized vehicle on trails, ensure your engine is tuned, operating properly, and has an approved spark arrester. Smoking will only be allowed in enclosed vehicles and within authorized recreation sites.

These restrictions will remain in place until the end of the fire season, normally in late autumn.  Anyone causing a wildfire could be liable for all costs associated with suppressing the fire. Visitors to Kern County Parks and adjacent BLM and Forest Service lands need to carefully follow each agency’s current fire restrictions.  If you spot a fire, call 911.
