Shasta / Trinity CALIF. – The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection is requiring burn permits for dooryard burning in areas over 1,000 feet in elevation beginning 8 a.m on May 1st. Dooryard burning below 1,000-foot elevation will be also be prohibited starting Tuesday as well. In Trinity County, North Coast Unified Air Quality Management District is requiring that all burns must obtain an additional burn permit prior to burning.

For larger burns, a non-standard permit is required by North Coast Unified Air Quality Management District and an LE-5 burn permit shall be obtained from CAL FIRE. All burns must also have a minimum 10-foot clearance to the bare mineral soil around all burn piles, a shovel and water source, and an adult present during burning. Not following these steps will result in a citation and fines.

This is just the start of Cal Fires steps towards wildfire season. On Thursday Cal Fire in Redding will start their annual aerial firefighting tactical training. This will entail testing the entire fleet of Cal Fire aircraft in the area as well as practice dropping water on a predetermined target. This testing is a very important part of the prep for wildfire season. Wildfire awareness week is also starting next week. This is a week to help educate the public on the importance and safety of preparedness headed into this season.
