Sheriff Sheridan requires that all controlled burns be called into our office (719-438-5411) or be called into our dispatch (Bent County Dispatch 719-456-1363.) When the controlled burn is extinguished call the Sheriff’s office and advise that is is completed

If Kiowa County is under a Red Flag warning or a burn ban the dispatcher or Kiowa County Sheriff’s Office employee will advise you of this and tell you can not burn
