Sedona Fire District Suspends Burn Permits

Sedona AZ – Effective immediately Sedona Fire District has suspended the issuance of new burn permits and will is not allowing the activation of existing permits.

“The moratorium on burning yard waste is made in order to align us with our state and federal partners which are suspending all prescribed burns for the time being,” said Fire Marshal Jon Davis. This decision will promote elevated air quality at a time when many people are facing the possibility of a respiratory virus and will help to limit public contacts for our first responders.

Sedona Fire District is monitoring the situation and will resume standard burn permit practices as conditions warrant.

    Remember the fire preparation of past that the SFD wanted us to do. We are all at home now. Why not organize a virtual Firewise preparation day in a week and pick up our efforts free of charge at a central location in the VOC and Chapel and Uptown and West Sedona? We need something productive to do and you have the info we need to get this important job done. I’d like to see the SFD issue direction for how we can volunteer to be firewise. We can do it in our own yards and social distance.

    I’d like to see the school kids get involved as community service credits. Have adults sign off on their effort. Have them pick up trash too.

    you make an interesting suggestion. If it’s one that you feel strongly about why not send an email to the new chief and ask the question. (deleted by editor)
