Be Fire Smart!

A graphic made advising the public to Stay Fire Smart!Every year burning grass and/or debris ignites a wildfire.  In the spring, cured grass dries quickly, ignites easily, and can spread out of control quickly.  These fires cause property damage and cost money to extinguish.  If you light it, you are responsible for it!

Instead of burning, you can:

  • Mow and compost grass
  • Chip and compost brush or use it as mulch

If you must burn:

  • Don't burn when it is windy
  • Light your fire two hours before sunset or later
  • Burn a safe distance from anything that could catch fire
  • Keep your fire small and stay with it until it is out
