Fire Blankets

Hi all,

Anyone know if there are actual size requirements for fire blankets on the Yampa? The regs just say "sufficient size to catch coals and ashes around the fire pan." What size do you use?

Thanks!

China Freight welding blanket has worked for every inspection I've had, but haven't floated the Yampa.

I've had very good luck calling the Dinosaur river office for rules clarification

We made our own as well: https://firesideoutdoor.com/products/ground-ember-mat

5'x6' meets the Grand Canyon regs. Coated on both sides with high-temp silicon so it shouldn't absorb water and makes it easy to clean off. Also has grommets and reflective taping.

MSRP: $69.95

Do you suppose the NPS put in the 5' x 6' (60" x 72") regulation to exclude the Harbor Freight welding blankets?

I just got the campfire defender fire blanket this spring, and I really like it so far. I haven't put it through the wringer yet, but it seems very durable and well thought out and constructed. I always appreciate good customer service too, and my experience so far has been top notch!

This is what I bought

Adheres to all regs everywhere I've been, although I admit that I haven't had a ranger with a tape measure, or even one that actually wanted to put eyes on it, just wanted to know if we had one. Your experience may differ, but I find that if I have all the gear neatly piled for inspection, and don't have to dig everything out for inspection at the ramp, things tend to be a little smoother at check in.



Not to mention it's $50 bucks cheaper than most any blanket with Campfire in it's name.

The 8'x 8' would work also as a small kitchen ground cloth.
