UTAH COUNTY, Utah – As evacuations are lifted and residents in Elk Ridge and Woodland Hills make their way back home, the Rocky Mountain Incident Management team released the following guidelines and information.

Welcome home neighbors! Rocky Mountain Incident Management Team is thrilled to welcome residents of Elk Ridge and Woodland Hills back into your homes. As you return, please be aware of the following important information.

You will see firefighters and firefighting equipment in your neighborhood. Please stay away from equipment; it can be dangerous, especially to children.

You will see areas that are still smoking or burning on the hillsides behind your homes. These are inside the firelines, and our firefighters are aware of them. They do not present a hazard, so please do not call 911. Receiving lots of calls would overburden the emergency system.

All areas inside the firelines are closed to public entry to protect your safety. Please stay out.

There will be Public Information Officers and Safety Officers from the fire team in your neighborhoods today. If you have questions, feel free to ask them.

In the unlikely event you see active burning close to the fireline that you think may be dangerous, a special phone line has been set up for Elk Ridge and Woodland Hills residents only. You may call 844-681-5436, which is staffed 24/7. This number is not for 911 type emergencies such as medical or structure fires.

There is a Temporary Flight Restriction in place over the Bald Mountain and Pole Creek Fires and surrounding areas. Flying drones in these areas is illegal due to safety conflicts with other aircraft. If you fly drones, we cannot fly our firefighting aircraft.
