“Winter Burning Season Open”
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 Thursday November 9th AVFD will be issuing Air Quality Burn permits to all in-district residents at the Anderson Valley Fire Station in Boonville.
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.
Visit Mendocino County Air Quality Management District’s Website for the complete list of rules and regulations. http://www.co.mendocino.ca.us/aqmd/index.html
