Welcome to the South Bay Fire Department!
Stage 1 Burn Ban Lifted
- If you have a certified wood stove or fireplace insert, make sure you are using it properly so you don’t produce excess chimney smoke. Excess smoke is always illegal. To learn more about clean burning techniques or upgrading to a certified, pellet, natural gas or propane stove, visit http://www.epa.gov/burnwise/
- To determine if your stove is certified, visit Orcca
- Limit your driving as much as possible, since vehicles are a big source of air pollution year round. Check air-quality forecasts and current conditions at www.orcaa.org
For more information about Burn Ban regulations, you may refer to Chapter 173-433 of the Washington Administrative Code.
