  • City's Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) Code


Availability is limited and on a first-come, first- serve basis through our public firewood give-away events and are announced through local media outlets, generally during the months of September and October. Through these events, we offer free, pre-cut firewood and post-and-pole material, usually ponderosa pine. Sites vary depending upon the season and on-going work.

Prescribed Fire

The Flagstaff Fire Department conducts 10-30 burns each year. Designed to reduce accumulations of hazardous fuels, prescribed fire is an important aspect of our program. Public notification of planned burns occurs primarily through local media outlets, but you may also receive individual notification of burn operations in your neighborhood.
