Additional fire restrictions (6/24/15)
The current fire indices and predicted weather (high temperatures and low humidity) are driving the need to increase to an Industrial Fire Precaution Level 2 in WO-1, beginning Thursday, June 25th at 1:00 am.

Under Industrial Fire Precaution Level 2 the following activities are not permitted between the hours of 1:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., except as noted:
1. Power saws, except power saws may operate at loading sites.
