Remember to Check Before You Burn in Sacramento County

For the last few years around this time, I have posted information regarding the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District's designated "Spare the Air" days where you can not burn wood in your fireplace.

Their "No Burn" days are still in effect this year too from November 1 through February 28. wood burning will be restricted or prohibited in Sacramento County when fine particle pollution is elevated.

You can actually sign up for email alerts from the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District. If you do not want to sign up for their daily emails, you can Check Before You Burn each day to confirm if it is legal to burn in your indoor or outdoor fireplace, wood stove, pellet stove, fire pit or chiminea by calling 1-877-NOBURN-5.

Check Before You Burn is in effect in Sacramento County and all its cities including Citrus Heights, Elk Grove, Folsom, Galt, Isleton, Rancho Cordova, and Sacramento.
