Burn Permit Information:

A Burn Permit is required to burn any time there is a Burn Restriction in effect, which is most of the time. This includes burning trash or camp fires.

The Sheriff sets the Burn Restriction Level with input from the Elbert County Fire Chiefs. For more information about Elbert County's Burn Restrictions, including the current Burn Restriction Level, see Burn Restriction Information on the Elbert County Web Site.

Regardless of the Burn Restriction Level, weather conditions can create a Red Flag Warning condition. During a Red Flag Warning, NO BURNING is allowed, even with a Burn Permit. You can check whether a Red Flag Warning is in effect on the National Weather Service Web Site.

Contact Chief Osborn for a Burn Permit. Burn Permits are free, and require an inspection of the burn site by the Chief or a designated Fire Department Officer.
