Fire Restrictions in Place

With dry conditions persisting throughout much of Minnesota, wildfire agencies have restricted open burning throughout the state.

As of midnight Friday morning, Minnesota Department of Natural Resources Commissioner Tom Landwehr, ordered open burning only be allowed for special exceptions by the county, state or federal agency having permitting responsibilities.

Recreational or campfires will only be allowed in a designated fire receptacle designed for such use, provided it is associated with a residence, dwelling, campground or resort.
The lack of early fall rains, combined with above normal temperatures and brisk winds, have created conditions more favorable to fires. The lack of precipitation allowed fuels to dry out, making them more susceptible to ignition and increasing the ability of fires to spread.

Business and Click it or Ticket

The Crow Wing County Passenger Safety Coalition will be working with  local businesses in promoting seat belt safety.

The CWCPS says the odds for injury in a crash are six-times greater if a motorist is not buckled up.

Brainerd Police Chief Corky McQuiston says they are constantly looking for methods to achieve more compliance with the seatbelt and child restraint laws.

Drivers and all passengers must be buckled up or in the correct child restraint. A seat belt fine can be more than $100. Unbelted deaths and injuries cost Minnesota $366 million annually in health care costs, emergency response, lost productivity and more, according to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety and the National Safety Council.

In support of law enforcement area businesses will be posting “Click it or Ticket” flyers, signage, advertisements and sticky notes.

For more information contact the Project Coordinator Myra Horner at 218-330-8155 or via email at
