May 1 marks the first day of the no burn season!
Every year, ADEM issues a burn ban for several Alabama counties, including Baldwin County. The purpose is to combat the formation of ground level ozone and the generation of fine particulate matter during warm weather months. When present at ground level, ozone is a respiratory irritant. ADEM strives to maintain good air quality in our great state. The federal Clean Air Act supports ADEM’s programs to ensure that all the citizens and visitors to our area have clean air to breathe.
The annual burn ban is May 1st through October 31st. Please wait until November 1st to contact our Station 1 for your burn permit requests.
