Rotary Clubs of Oakhurst in partnership with Eastern Madera County Chamber Alliance is supporting Sierra National Forest fire restrictions that went into effect this week by developing and distributing No Open Fires signs that are available now at the Oakhurst Area Chamber of Commerce office to Chamber members and non-members.
Campfires will still be allowed in designated campgrounds. propane camp stoves are being allowed with a campfire permit. No charcoal or open flames.
Rhonda Salisbury, CEO of Visit Yosemite Madera County said “It’s such a big holiday weekend with hundreds of tourists visiting our office and we want everyone to stay safe and be vigilant of the no fire restriction. Having the ‘no fire’ sign posted in our office and businesses around the community helps communicate the message. Businesses please assist by postering the sign which you can pick up at the Oakhurst Chamber of Commerce."
Forest Services District office in North Fork and Oakhurst will be open Monday, July 4, with their normal business hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to assist visitors with any questions about designated campgrounds, and which ones are open or closed.
