Open Burning Precautions 4/26/2023

The snow is leaving, and spring burning season has started. The Sheridan County Commissioners and County Fire Chiefs ask the public to be very cautious with any open burning in the County. Grass and other light fuels can dry quickly if the weather warms up or the wind blows. Rural fire departments have already responded to escaped prescribed burns in Sheridan County. Prior to any planned outside burning, please; Notify the Dispatch Center at 307-672-2413. This will avoid dispatching volunteer firefighters to investigate reported smoke the Dispatch Office didn’t know was planned burn. Check the weather forecast for warnings, if increased winds are predicted, avoid burning prior and during that time; Have fire tools, water, and a phone readily available; and do not delay calling for help if your burn gets out of hand. Early response can minimize control efforts and potential damage. Be sure to visit for the latest County news and information. 

Firesafe Kit  
Hello I am Division Chief Chad Brutlag, from your Sheridan Fire-Rescue Department. In partnership with the Wyoming State Fire Marshal’s Office and Fire Departments around the state, we have formed the 307CRR initiative to focus on Community Risk Reduction in Wyoming.

Wyoming has suffered the loss of far too many of our citizens from fires in homes that utilize home oxygen. We have identified a simple device that will combat this problem thereby reducing the risk of injury and death to you, your family, and responding Firefighters while simultaneously slowing fire spread and limiting damage to your property.

The Firesafe valve is an easily installed device that will shut off the flow of oxygen when it is exposed to fire. If you or any member of your household is in need of one of these life-saving devices please contact the Sheridan Fire-Rescue Department or The Wyoming State Fire Marshal’s Office at [email protected] beneath the 307CRR logo to request your free Firesafe valve kit today

Sheridan Fire-Rescue would like to remind everyone the importance of working  smoke alarms.  Please see the attached video.

Smoke Detector / Carbon Monoxide Detector

Sheridan Fire-Rescue would like to remind everyone that it is the time of the year when Daylight Savings Time Ends that we all need to check and replace batteries in our smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.  When purchasing new detectors, please check the date on the back of the detector and make sure it is not expired.  Please check out our video  that  Public Education Chairman Firefighter Zach McLain has put together.
