Pursuant to Florida Statute, Section 252.38(3)(5), Burn Bans can only be declared locally for seven (7) days and may be extended, as necessary, in seven (7) day increments. Since County offices are closed next Friday in observance of Good Friday, a Special Meeting has been scheduled for Thursday, April 13th at 9:00 a.m. for the Board to consider another extension to the Burn Ban, if needed.
The current Burn Ban prohibits burning of yard debris and trash. It does not pertain to cooking on attended and monitored barbeque equipment or to permits issued by the Division of Forestry.
If you have any questions, please contact Fire Rescue Headquarters at (904) 530-6300. If you need to report someone burning yard debris, please call 9-1-1.
