Burning Bans

Code: JR-8000.0900

Programs that issue orders that temporarily restrict outdoor burning when hot, dry and windy conditions create an increased risk of wildfires. Also included are burning bans that are issued when winter weather conditions are especially cold and still contributing to increased air pollution from particulate matter. This type of burning ban prohibits both indoor and outdoor burning unless a fireplace or wood stove is a person's only source of heat.
