Atascadero Fire and Emergency Services has officially opened the Fire Hazard Reduction Burn Season for 2020.

This is 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.

Community members must obtain the daily burn day status by calling (805) 461-5070, Option 8.

Atascadero Fire and Emergency Services strongly encourages the community to utilize alternative forms of disposal, such as the Waste Alternatives' Green Waste recycling container and burning should be used as a last resort.

Copies of Atascadero's Burn Regulations and various waste alternative programs are available here.

Atascadero Fire and Emergency Services has a zero tolerance policy and will issue citations for violations of the burning regulations.

If you would like further information contact Atascadero Fire and Emergency Services at (805) 461-5070.
