Checking Burn Ban Status

How can I find out when a burn ban is called or cancelled?

There are many ways to check burn ban status.

  • E-mail: You can join our Clean Air Action Network to receive electronic notification of burn bans. You'll be among the first to know when burn bans are issued and cancelled, or advised when weather conditions indicate a ban is likely

  • Social media: We post burn ban announcements to Facebook and Twitter accounts:

  • Text alerts - Pierce County only. For notices about Pierce County burn bans, you can sign up for text alerts. Just text PIERCEBURN to 313131.

  • Web site. Check the Air Actions box in the upper right corner of most pages on our Web site for burn ban status.  This box is updated as conditions change, 365 days a year.

  • Telephone. Call our burn ban InfoLine: 1-800-595-4341.
