Facebook: Like all fire, prescribed fire leads to smoke. However, prescribed fires are planned carefully to keep smoke at acceptable levels. Occasionally, smoke from prescribed fire can accumulate in a community, but usually only for a few hours, as opposed to smoke exposure from uncontrolled wildfires which typically last longer, resulting in harmful air quality. Check with local officials for burning schedules so you can be prepared. Learn more below.

Facebook: When maintaining or creating defensible space, it’s easy to accumulate a large amount of "green waste" consisting of leaves, weeds, branches, and shrubs that need disposing of. In some areas, open pile burning is one method of disposal. Open pile burning requires a permit from your local fire agency and is typically only allowed during the Spring and Fall, on days when the air quality is good, and the risk of a controlled fire escaping is low.
