Effective March 6, 2017, Jefferson County Sheriff enacted a Stage 2 Fire Ban for Jefferson County. This temporary Stage 2 Fire Ban supersedes all previous Fire Restrictions and Bans. This temporary Stage 2 Fire Ban applies to all lands in Jefferson County. For a list of prohibited activities, please visit the Jefferson County Fire Ban web page and Fire Ban Picture Dictionary. 

From government to individual citizens and service providers, being prepared for emergencies is everyone's job. We've put together a few resources to help you be prepared.

Emergency Preparedness

Whether you want to learn about Arvada's emergency notification systems, want to read tips on being prepared, or want to create an emergency kit, our Emergency Preparedness resources will help. 

Flood Information

Even though the likelihood of serious floods is low, it is best to be prepared for them. Preparedness includes considering flood insurance, knowing how to stay safe during a flood, and knowing whether your property is in a floodplain.
