There are many factors in the decision process as to whether or not burning is allowed.
The Fire Marshal or the Assistant Fire Marshal makes the decision on whether burning is allowed by 8:00am on a daily basis. This decision is based on ambient conditions, fire weather forecasts from the National Weather Service, and guidance from the Georgia Forestry Commission. At times, conditions may improve or deteriorate. In such cases, the burn/no burn status may change. Please refer back to this website to see if the status has been updated.
If someone is burning, and the smoke is causing you to have respiratory distress, please call 911. Do not call the non-emergency number. This is particularly important if you have Asthma, COPD, or other respiratory ailments that are aggravated by smoke.

Requirement and Requests for Extra Duty Police Officers & Auxiliary Police Officers
Special events are important to local governments for many reasons, including the public enjoyment, a sense of community, and revenue for local businesses. Effective security and traffic control is a critical feature of these events. The Police Department is responsible for receiving, evaluating, recommending, and providing security and traffic services for all organized events within the City. Completion of this application is required to employ the extra-duty services of Police Officer(s). The requested number of Police Officers shall provide police duties in addition to those generally provided to the public. It is understood that the Peachtree City Police Department will make every effort to coordinate the hiring of extra duty officer(s) pursuant to your application; however, the Peachtree City Police Department is not obligated to provide extra duty police service pursuant to your application. A permit application will not be approved for any person, firm, or organization whose officers, members, business, or operations are questionable or for any event that will discredit the employee or Department. It is understood that, notwithstanding the fact that the permit holder will reimburse the officer for the services rendered, the police personnel hired pursuant to your application remain employees of the Peachtree City Police Department. The applicant is restricted to the general assignment of duties for which the extra-duty officer(s) were hired, but has no authority over the police personnel.
Police Officers are also available to provide traffic control on public streets for events that draw additional vehicular, bicycle, parking, and pedestrian traffic. Police officers are limited to performing only law enforcement related functions at your event. Some specific duties that police officers are prohibited from performing include:
Ticket taking or seat ushering;
Carding or identifying individuals to determine their status and right to attend the event;
Collection of any money;
Enforcement of management rules. Officers will only assist in the event that event coordinator requests the removal of a person.
Police Officers are billed on a 4-hour minimum rate:
Security and low impact Traffic Control = $40 per hour
Traffic Control (high impact) = $50 per hour
Traffic Control that lasts under an hour = $40.00 per hour for a minimum of two (2) hours.
Holiday Security or Holiday Traffic Control = $50 per hour (Holidays include Christmas Day/Eve, Father’s/Mother’s Day, July 4th, Easter, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving/Black Friday, New Year’s Eve/Day)
Movie Production = $50 per hour
Auxiliary Police Officers:
In addition to being able to provide police officers for special events, the department is equipped with an Auxiliary Police Force. The Peachtree City Auxiliary Police Force is a volunteer organization of well-trained civilians who work hand and hand with police officers providing services similar to what a security guard is capable of doing for your event with the added benefit of having direct radio access to the Police Department. The Police Auxiliary is trained in Police Department policies, and will notify the Peachtree City Police in the event that police services are required. Police Auxiliary can perform limited traffic control for the closing of streets and parking lot areas.
Auxiliary Police Officers customarily receive a donation of $200.00 per event. A donation is not required, but is appreciated as it allows the Auxiliary Police to support the department on all areas of mutual concern. The Peachtree City Police Department Auxiliary Force is a not for profit organization, which provides support to numerous organizations within the department that support the community. Any donation made to the Auxiliary Police is tax deductible.
Thorough research and planning substantially reduces unsafe conditions and unnecessary expenditures at special events. This occurs when the event requires services beyond the capabilities of the normal police patrol shift. The police department will base the number of Police Officers and Auxiliary Police Officers by employing a special events risk factors and staff matrix. For this reason, it is critical for event organizers to disclose all known risk factors to the Peachtree City Police during the planning stage of the event. Negligent or intentional omissions, or disclosures of information that negatively impacts safety, will result in re-calculation of increased security and traffic control cost(s) necessary to protect life and property.
Although you can request a Police Officer, in order to ensure the safety of Peachtree City Police and your event attendees, the Police Department reserves the right to make the ultimate determination on the number of personnel assigned to your event. For example, a minimum of two officers is generally required for any event needing police services where alcohol is being served. If your event requires four police officers, a supervisor will be assigned to the event.
We are here to make your event as successful and safe as possible. If you have any questions regarding Special Events and Extra Duty employment please contact Lt. Mark Brown at 770-487-8866 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
