Know when not to burn—sign up for alerts.
Puget Sound Clean Air Agency enforces burn bans countywide and calls them when:
- Air quality is unhealthy.
- Fire hazard exists because of dry conditions.
Puget Sound Clean Air Agency can issue fines up to $2,500. Steps you can take to avoid fines and help our community meet federal air quality standards:
- Sign up for burn ban alerts.
- Apply for the right to burn during a ban if burning wood is your only source of heat.
