Why are burn bans so important

8/9/2021 (Permalink)

What is a burn ban? Why are they so important? What would warrant a burn ban to be implemented? Lets start with the basics! A burn ban is a fire restriction that is implemented by the Land Management Agencies to help reduce the risk and prevention of wildfires during periods of high or extremely high fire dangers.

Fire restrictions are usually brought on quickly and sometimes without notice depending on how the quality of the air is, the wind speed and also the temperatures. 

Why are these burn bans so important? Well did you know that debris burning starts the most human-caused fires? When someone makes the decision to burn debris they need to be very aware of the wind speed as well as the temperatures. Fires can become out of control extremely quickly and can cause extreme amounts of damage including structure fires and wild fires just to name a few. Every county has a fire information website that can be checked for fire ban questions.
