Utah’s official fire season begins and the open burning season officially ends each year on May 31. Fire danger will increase rapidly as warmer and drier weather develops. So far, tests are showing that despite the rainy spring, moisture levels in grassy fuels are below average. So far this spring, several debris burns have blown out of control, escaped and become wildfires burning private and public land. As of June 1, open burning is prohibited without a permit.

Spring is in the air, bringing with it the excitement of outdoor activities for everyone. Morgan County is no different. We are going to be participating in the Utah Shake Out Exercise that will be held April 17-19. What is the Shake Out you ask? Well, Counties throughout the state will be exercising emergency plans. This exercise was started by FEMA and backed by the State. The scenario is as follows: a 7.0 earthquake will be reported from the Wasatch Front at 10:15 a.m. on April 17, 2012. Schools will be in session, family members may be elsewhere at work, and telephone lines will be down.
