Cooperative Fire Protection with CAL FIRE Since 1927
RESIDENTIAL BURN PERMITS REQUIRED MAY 1, 2017
The Tehama Glenn Unit of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) and the Tehama County Fire Department (TCFD) want to remind everyone that burn permits will be required starting Monday May 1, 2017 in the unincorporated areas of Tehama County, except in the Capay Fire District, and will be required until the burn suspension goes into effect. In addition, burn permits are required within the State Responsibility Areas (SRA) of Glenn County. Residents should check with their local fire officials for burning restrictions within the Corning city limits or if they live in portions of Glenn County that are not in the SRA. All residential burning has been banned within the city limits of Red Bluff. If weather conditions dictate, due to dry fuels and/or fire conditions, the burn suspension could go into effect earlier than the normal June 1st date. Residents who plan on conducting dooryard burning should keep this in mind and plan their dooryard burning accordingly and have it completed before the burn suspension goes in to effect.
As a reminder, always have a minimum 10 foot clearance down to bare mineral soil around all burn piles, have a shovel and a water source available, and an adult present during burning. Failure to follow these simple precautions may result in a citation and fines. For further information go to www.readyforwildfire.org .
