Their office is in the Grand County Road Shop at 469 E. Topaz in Granby. The phone number is 887-0745 or you can go to the Grand County website using the following link: www.co.grand.co.us.

Open Burn Status

For the current open burn status, visit www.co.grand.co.us/142/Open-Burning. Open burning is allowed during the winter months, only on days with good or better air quality conditions. Please call 887-0745 for approval to burn EACH TIME you would like to burn or for more information.

Open Burning General Information 

Visit the Department of Natural Resources website’s open burn information for more details, including the open burning status (open/closed), Burn Permit Application, Open Burn County Ordinance, State of CO Regulations, GCDNR Delegation of Authority, and the Grand County Open Burning Management Plan.

Open Burning Conditions 

The opening and closing of burn season depends upon weather and the presence of sufficient, permanent snow pack throughout most of the county. As a result, start and end dates vary from year to year but generally the burn season runs from late November through March.

Grand County Division of Natural Resources begins issuing open burn permits in the fall. These permits are valid for an entire burn season and expire on April 1st. Visit the Department of Natural Resources website’s open burn information for the Burn Permit Application, general burn condition info, and more details, or call their office during business hours at 970-887-0745.

Kitchen Hood Replacement Program a Success!!

kitchen fire burn damage

Over the last decade, our local restaurants were faced with the financial burden of updating their kitchen fire suppression systems to meet changing fire safety standards. East Grand Fire wanted to help lessen this costly expense for our local restaurants so thus created the Commercial Kitchen Safety Incentive Program. This provided up to a $500.00 grant to help the with required replacement of antiquated kitchen hood fire suppression systems in the East Grand Fire Protection District.

We are pleased to say that, to date, East Grand Fire was able to help 11 establishments with the required upgrade to their hood systems. The project is now being completed and East Grand Fire is very happy to have been able to be a part of this important life safety and property preservation enhancing project for our community.
