Time to Check Before You Burn in Sacramento - November 1 - February 28

Every year for the better part of the last decade, from November through February, the Sacramento Region Air Quality Management District has implemented the "Check Before You Burn" program. They forecast regional air quality every day and when particulate matter is high, they may restrict or prohibit burning. Penalties for burning (wood, pellets, or manufactured logs in indoor or outdoor fireplaces, wood stoves, fire pits, or chimineas) start at $50 for the first violation. Please help maintain good and safe Sacramento air quality! You can check the website super easily here or sign up for daily emails. They also have an app available to download.
