Station 8 Volunteer Recruitment Event

Sheridan area residents will be hosting a "pot luck" affair on December 2, 2018 at the Sheridan Fire Station at 3:00 PM. The purpose of the gathering is solely to recruit those interested in serving as volunteers. Information and presentations will be made at that time about what it takes to be a productive volunteer. Anyone interested in volunteering in the Sheridan Area or anywhere in the East Fork jurisdiction can also contact the East Fork Fire Protection District at 775-782-9040, go to Our Volunteer Membership page or stop by Station 8 on the 2nd of December.

Winter 2018 Backyard Burn Season

The Winter 2018 general backyard burn season will be opening Saturday, October 20, and will run through Sunday, December 16.

A Burn Permit can be downloaded here.

Residents participating in general backyard burning will be instructed per the permit to call the East Fork Fire burn line each day they wish to burn. A recording will advise whether it is a permissive burn day and what the permissive burn hours are for that day. The burn days and hours will be determined by the Battalion Chief; burning can start as early as 0700 hours and must be completely extinguished by 1530 hours.

It is the responsibility of the burner to have the correct burn permit on the premises and to check the burn line to confirm burn day status and hours.
