Burn Permits

NOTICE OF RESTRICTIONS


 
FIRE SEASON HAS STARTED
  • Be mindful of activities that may cause a spark.
  • Don't toss a cigarette out your window when you're driving or onto the ground when you're outside.
  • Make sure your chains aren't dragging when towing.
  • As always, make sure you have a permit prior to performing a controlled burn and that you have a way to put it out quickly.
  • If wildfire air operations are in progress, don't fly your drone - any aircraft in the area have to leave the area and land if you do (plus it's illegal).
THERE ARE CURRENTLY NO BURN RESTRICTIONS IN PLACE UNLESS A RED FLAG OR WIND WARNING HAS BEEN ISSUED.
Please see NOTICES on the "Welcome!" page.


PERMITS

Due to community concern with COVID-19, we are issuing permits through this page ONLY.

You will be contacted by email within 24 hours (usually within an hour) with either your permit or a request for more information/clarification.  Please be patient.


  • Per the State of Arizona, "burn barrels" are NOT considered an "Approved Waste Burner" and may not be used in the state.
  • The burning of household trash is also prohibited if your address is able to receive commercial garbage service but you have chosen not to use it.



BEFORE APPLYING, YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO DRAW A MAP
Please show the following:
  1. All structures (including fences) on your property and bordering properties.  Include gas meters, utility poles, overhead wires, all buildings and propane/fuel/water tanks.
  2. The location on your property where you will be performing the burn.
  3. The distances (in feet) from all of the above to your burn site.  Under no circumstances will a permit be issued for a burn site that is within 50 feet of any structure, propane/fuel/water tank, gas meter or overhead utility lines.
When you've finished, please scan the map into your computer and save it in an easy to find location.  If you have to use your phone's camera, please transfer the photo of the map to your computer.

You will be required to upload the map into the application in order to submit it.
APPLICATIONS WITHOUT A MAP WILL BE DECLINED.
