Fire Preparedness

Please note:

Draper Residents,

There are so many fires across our state right now, and the dry conditions will only continue to get worse. Due to the high risk of a wildfire from fireworks, Draper City will be taking a ZERO TOLERANCE stance on anyone lighting fireworks in the prohibited areas in Draper City. Please check the map below to see where fireworks are allowed. Draper City Police Officers will be monitoring all areas where fireworks are banned and will be issuing tickets if they see anyone breaking the law. There will be no warnings. The fine for this violation is $1,000. Please help us get the word out. Let your neighbors know. Let's all band together to make the 24th of July SAFE IN DRAPER. We thank you for your cooperation.

Firewise Program


The Firewise Program is being introduced in Draper with the goal to reduce the loss of lives, property and resources to wildland fire by building and maintaining communities in a way that is compatible with our natural surroundings. Landowners understandably prefer to make choices related to their surroundings. Often people believe there is nothing they can do, that wildfire mitigation is too difficult or prohibitively expensive. This is not the case. Get involved. Learn about the Firewise Program.
