Red Flag Warning — No Burning in EP Today!
The National Weather Service issued a red flag warning today due to forecast high winds and low humidity.
Under these conditions, the Eden Prairie Fire Department prohibits recreational fires. Red flag warnings indicate potentially explosive fire conditions and are not issued frequently. When a red flag warning is issued, the Fire Department urges residents to comply with the City's Recreational Fire Guidelines to ensure the safety of everyone in our community.
With summer-like weather upon us, now is a good time to review the City's Recreational Fire Guidelines to ensure your recreational fire is safe and enjoyable. A printed copy of these guidelines, available at edenprairie.org/RecreationalFires, serves as your permit to host a recreational fire, and must be on-site.
For more information about recreational fires in Eden Prairie, call 952-949-6200 and ask for the Fire Prevention Bureau.
