Driving Reminder
Mariposa County Fire Department would like to remind you to limit possible distractions that could take your attention away from driving.  When driving at high speeds on our mountain roads it is of the utmost importance you concentrate on the roads, your vehicle and the weather conditions.  A distraction of just a split second can be disastrous.
* Also, Please remember that burning restrictions are in effect throughout the County. Make sure to call the burn line at 209-966-1200 before considering any residential burning.
