Open Burning Permit

Need a burn permit? It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

Please complete the following 3 steps to ensure your permit process goes as quickly and smoothly as possible.

Step 1. Make sure to check for favorable conditions before you ignite any debris burn.

Check the wind speed for the day. Burning is NOT allowed if wind speeds are higher than 10 MPH or if a Red Flag Warning has been issued by NWS. Information for your location can be checked at the US National Weather website,
Confirm that there are no Fire Restrictions in place before you ignite any debris burn at the following page:

Step 2. Use our interactive map to ensure you are obtaining your permit from the correct agency. You can click on any of the highlighted areas to get the district/department permit information or search your address. If your location is inside of a highlighted area, please contact that agency for a burn permit. If the location is outside of any of the highlighted areas, then you will proceed to the step 3.

Step 3. Complete the Open Burn Permit application below for any of the areas OUTSIDE of the highlighted areas. Don’t forget to call BEFORE you ignite your debris burn to let the correct agency know your plans.

**Remember, NEVER leave a debris burn (or any other fire) unattended at any time. You are responsible for extinguishing any debris burn so that it is completely cold to the touch! You will be held responsible for the cost of damages and the cost of the suppression efforts from fire officials.
