Council Wide Burn Ban

Posted on Oct 13 2016 - 11:09am



This ban includes all 22 counties in theGreater Alabama Council and applies to all unit campouts and council properties.

Governor Robert Bentley on Wednesday signed a Drought Emergency Declaration due to extremely dry conditions. The declaration often referred to as a ‘No Burn Order’, prohibits all outdoor burning for 46 counties in north and central Alabama. The order is effective as of 3:00 p.m., Wednesday, October 12, 2016.

“The current drought condition in our state is posing a serious threat for wildfires,” Governor Bentley said. “The continued lack of rain combined with low relative humidity and strong winds put us at a very high risk. This declaration is meant to prevent unnecessary burning, reducing the chance of avoidable fires.”

The No Burn Order affects the following counties which have been upgraded from the previously-issued Fire Alert: Autauga, Bibb, Blount, Calhoun, Chambers, Cherokee, Chilton, Clay, Cleburne, Colbert, Coosa, Cullman, Dallas,DeKalb, Elmore, Etowah, Fayette, Franklin, Greene, Hale, Jackson, Jefferson,Lamar, Lauderdale, Lawrence, Lee, Limestone, Lowndes, Macon, Madison,Marion, Marshall, Montgomery, Morgan, Perry, Pickens, Randolph, Russell,Shelby, St. Clair, Sumter, Talladega, Tallapoosa, Tuscaloosa, Walker, and Winston.

The Drought Emergency Declaration order will remain in effect until rescinded by the State Forester, at which time conditions will have changed sufficiently to reduce the occurrence and frequency of wildfires. To report persons burning in violation of this law, contact your local law enforcement.
