Burn Permits

“Winter Burning Season Open”

Effective 11/07/16

Cal Fire has closed “Fire Season” and we are now in “Winter Burning Season”. All burning during Winter Burning Season must be done under a valid Mendocino County Air Quality Management District Permit.

Starting Monday November 8th AVFD will be issuing Air Quality Burn permits to all in-district residents at the Anderson Valley Fire Station in Boonville.

Saturday November 19th from noon to 4pm, AVFD will be serving free hamburgers and issuing burn permits at our “Open Fire house”.

Depending on the time of year and present fire conditions, burn permits may be required by Mendocino Air Quality, Cal Fire, or both. Anderson Valley FD issues MCAQMD permits for free during the winter burning season period to in-district properties only as a service and convenience for the Anderson Valley community.

Always call 463-4391 to see if it is a burn day prior to burning. Typically one can call the evening before and the obtain burn day status and information for the following day.

You can visit MCAQMD’s website for their complete list of rules and regulations for winter burning. [air quality management]
