FIRE BAN IN COUNTY PARKS

September
8

Because continuing high temperatures and lack of rain contribute to increased risk for fire, Westchester County Parks Acting Commissioner Kathy O’Connor announced a ban on open fires at all county parks.

O’Connor said that during the ban, charcoal and propane fires will only be permitted for cooking in permanently fixed grills in the parks. No open fires are permitted. She also asked that patrons to be vigilant in alerting park staff to any potential fire hazards they may see while visiting.

Conditions will be monitored on a daily basis.
