In August the Cleveland National Forest announced its fire danger level public awareness program. The Fire Danger Level has been moved to EXTREME effective September 27, 2004.

"Forest visitors should use care and caution when visiting the Cleveland National Forest. They should also check what the allowable activities are and what restrictions are in place," said Tina Terrell, Forest Supervisor for the Cleveland National Forest.

In addition to campfire restrictions, smoking is allowed only in enclosed vehicles and developed recreation sites. Also, spark arrestors are required for all off-highway vehicles and other internal combustible equipment should be checked to make sure they are in working order.

We would like to remind visitors that fireworks are never allowed on the Cleveland National Forest and that discharging a firearm with steel core; armor piercing or tracer ammunition is also NOT allowed.

Fire Danger levels are subject to change with weather, fire activity, and available fire staffing resources. Additional activities and areas may be restricted, check with the local district office before planning your trip.

Visitors are encouraged to check before they go. For a recorded message please call 619-593-2183 or for online information go to http://www.fs.fed.us/r5/cleveland.
