SUMMER BURN BAN

 

If you haven’t noticed or heard yet, there is a burn ban which will take effect July 1st, 2017. The ban includes all outdoor fires except 2’ by 3’ recreational fires. Recreational fires (camp fires) must only burn dry seasoned firewood.  Yard waste is not allowed in recreational fires.  In the event of more severe dry conditions the County Fire Marshal may declare a complete ban of all burning.    The current ban was instituted several years ago as typically the Olympic Peninsula burn season runs from July 1 through the end of September.  A permanent ban period allows property owners and contractors to plan their activities accordingly.  Of course the ban can be extended if weather conditions warrant an extension. 

With warm summer temperatures and easterly winds coming, home owners should take fire prevention action now. Things that can be done include the following:

  1. Create a defensible space greater than 30 feet around the house
  2. Clean your roof and gutters
  3. Clean porches and decks of debris and combustibles
  4. Eliminate “ladder fuels” leading to your home by pruning 6’ to 10’ from the ground
  5. locate wood piles at least 30 feet from the structure
  6. Put screening over vent holes (less than 1/8” mesh)
  7. Maintain a clear driveway at least 12 feet wide and 15 feet high
  8. Mark your address so emergency vehicles can find your home
  9. Keep your lawn mowed and maintained
  10. When possible, use construction materials that are fire-resistant or non-combustible
