New map brings clarity for burn restrictions across the state

BISMARCK, N.D. – The North Dakota Department of Emergency Services, along with the North Dakota Forest Service, is pleased to publish a new Burn Restrictions Map. This interactive map displays daily restrictions for jurisdictional areas, such as counties and Tribal Nations, across the state. 

“This is a significant improvement in user experience to help keep natural resources and people safe in North Dakota while recreating, farming, and using fire responsibly,” says State Forester, Tom Claeys.

Previously, citizens and tourists had to review information in three separate maps to determine if they could start a campfire. To add to the confusion, counties often did not share the same language within their restrictions. The new map is more user-friendly and will help clarify many of these inconsistencies.
