Chelan County Fire Hazard Designation

Chelan County recently adopted new language for its fire hazard levels to be more consistent with other government agencies.

The fire danger level in Chelan County -- in both the Valley and Chelan Mountain zones -- is Stage 1, formerly called Moderate.

Stage 1 restrictions are meant to help reduce the occurrence of fires that may be caused by recreational, residential, commercial and other activities. Signs are posted throughout the county with the restrictions. Area activity and road travel restrictions include:

  • No motor vehicles off the road
  • No fireworks (fireworks are banned throughout Chelan County)
  • Prohibited use of exploding targets and incendiary ammunition
  • Restricted outdoor fires
  • Restricted open flame devices

Recreational residential campfires are allowed in a campfire area installed in accordance with the Chelan County fire advisory board guidelines.

Restriction levels that may be applied to a fire hazard area in Chelan County are: Stage 1, Stage 2 and Stage 3. See Chelan County Code Chapter 7.52 for more information.
