OPEN BURNING REQUIREMENTS
By accepting a permit, you agree to abide by the following requirements:
1. No burning shall be done before 8:00 a.m. or later than 7:00 p.m.
2. Fires shall be under constant observance by the permittee, or other competent person acting for him, and shall not be permitted to smolder, give off heavy smoke, flying sparks, noxious odors, or otherwise create a nuisance in the neighborhood.
3. Material burned under this permit shall not contain tree stumps, bones, rags, rubber, petroleum products, plastics, asphalt or composition roofing, tar, tar paper, paints, or be too wet or compact to burn freely.
4. The person whom this permit is issued shall be responsible for such fire and the observance of the above conditions. A violation of or failure to observe any of said conditions by said permittee, or by any other person acting under this permit, shall constitute a misdemeanor by the permittee as well as by such other person, and the permit may be revoked.
5. A method of extinguishment will be near or quickly accessible if immediate extinguishment is needed.
6. Due to burn bans that periodically appear, you may be contacted by a fire department official that may terminate your permit.
8. A permit is required for every controlled fire.
9. All open burning should be at least 25 feet from a structure, unless fire is in a controlled fire pit, and it shall be extinguished when leaving unattended.
Warning: DO NOT BURN OPEN FIRES WHEN WIND IS BLOWING OR NEAR ANY COMBUSTIBLE STRUCTURES!
