Fire Restrictions NOT Lifted

We wanted to let everyone know that even though we have received some rainfall, there are not going to be any changes in the fire restrictions any time soon. The chances for a catastrophic wildfire are still present. It is going to take more than a few scatted showers for us to be in a position to lift those restrictions. So please note that Stage 3 Fire restrictions are still in effect in the unincorporated areas of Apache and Navajo County.

We appreciate everyone’s cooperation.
