(S.D.)- Fireworks Not Permitted In Black Hills National Forest
Custer, SD– With Independence Day just around the corner, Black Hills National Forest officials are reminding the public that fireworks are prohibited on the Black Hills National Forest and within the Black Hills Fire Protection District.
Possessing, discharging or using any kind of fireworks or pyrotechnic devices is prohibited on the Black Hills National Forest year-round, regardless of weather conditions or holidays.
In light of the abundant recent moisture, light fuels in the forest can still dry quickly. Fire danger exists in the form of grass and twigs that lose their moisture content quickly when the sun comes out and the wind picks up.
As a reminder, campfires are permitted in established metal fire rings or grills that are in designated sites within a developed campground, recreation area or picnic ground.
