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:am 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.
