Pinal County and SFMD Lift Open Burning Restrictions Starting October 1, 2016
The Superstition Fire & Medical District (SFMD), in cooperation with Pinal County Air Quality, has lifted the Open Burning restrictions effective October 1, 2016. Outdoor cooking fires and small recreational or warming fires do not require a permit. All other burning requires a valid burn permit as issued by Pinal County Air Quality.
As always, we encourage all citizens to be mindful of their surroundings when planning or implementing any type of recreational or permitted fire. Keep children and animals away from the fire and have the required extinguishing equipment immediately available. Please remember that general household trash and garbage cannot be burned in recreational or permitted fires.
The State of Arizona (area “A” designation) requires that open burning be restricted from May 1st through September 30th each year. It is anticipated that open burning will remain in effect through April 30, 2017 however if conditions are dryer than normal, burn restrictions could be implemented sooner.
These guidelines and restrictions apply to all City and County areas within the SFMD boundaries. Any questions regarding these restrictions should be directed to the SFMD Fire Prevention Division at (480) 982-4440 ext. 105.
