2019 Burn season opens for fire hazard reduction


ATASCADERO — Atascadero Fire & Emergency Services has officially opened the Fire Hazard Reduction Burn Season. A reminder that the burn day status, whether it is a permissive burn day or not, changes daily and is determined by the California Air Resources Board and north county weather conditions. Residents must obtain the daily burn day status by calling 805-461-5070, Option 8.
Atascadero Fire and Emergency Services strongly encourages residents to utilize alternative forms of disposal, such as the Waste Alternatives’ Green Waste recycling container or the Chicago Grade Landfill.  Burning should be used as a last resort.
Copies of Atascadero’s Burn Regulations and various waste alternative programs are available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at Fire Station 1, located at 6005 Lewis Avenue or on www.atascadero.org
Atascadero Fire & Emergency Services has a zero tolerance policy and will issue citations for violations of the burning regulations.
If you would like further information please contact Atascadero Fire & Emergency Services at 805- 461-5070.
