FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: HARRISON COUNTY LIFTS OPEN BURNING BAN

The following is a press release from Harrison County Emergency Management

LOGAN, IA- The open burning ban in Harrison County has been lifted today as of 10:00 AM and residents may resume open burning beginning Thursday, November 15, 2022. 

Open burning is now allowable throughout the county EXCEPT in any municipal city limits where there is a standing ordinance prohibiting open burning on a regular basis. Before burning, check with your local fire department or city clerk to determine whether your community has such an ordinance. All residents are strongly encouraged to call the Harrison County Communications Center at 712-644-2244 before any open burns are started and after they have completed burning. 

Residents are to continue using extreme caution whenever burning. The recent rain and snow cover will provide temporary, short-term relief of dangerous fire conditions. The county is still significantly below precipitation averages and experiencing drought conditions throughout the area. It won't take long for fuels to become extremely volatile under the right conditions, again. Residents are asked to keep the future weather forecasts in mind when burning as we have seen several recent fires that were previous open burns which had rekindled. Please take all precautions before burning.  

Residents are encouraged to sign up to receive emergency and urgent community alerts related to fire warnings, evacuation orders, severe weather threats as well as any other important message issued from the community.  To sign up, please visit https://member.everbridge.net/892807736721501/login.
