Burn Ban

February 27, 2024

Due to the current weather conditions, low humidity, and extremely high winds, Please be advised that the Shoal Creek Fire Protection District has issued a burn ban.

This is done under the authority of District Ordinance 12-3.  Residents within the Shoal Creek Fire Protection District are asked to refrain from all forms of open burning, including brush piles, trash barrels, recreational fires, and crops.  Persons found in violation of this ordinance may be subject to citations and fines.

Please understand that this is being done not only for the safety of our first responders, but also for the well being of our taxpayers and the property that we serve.

The ban will be lifted as soon as conditions are more favorable for safe burning.  Please monitor social media, and WSMI for any updates. 

Thank you for your cooperation.

 

David Caulk, Sr.

Fire Chief

Shoal Creek Fire Protection District
