Determining danger levels

Fire danger is the probability of a fire to start as well as the rate of spread and intensity of its burn. Awareness of fire danger levels helps decrease wildfire ignitions.

State and local authorities determine when risk is high enough to instate burn bans prohibiting open fires. Review state open burning rules , and know that your local (city/parish) ones may be stricter, so consult your local government before open burning.

Even when there aren’t burn bans, we recommend checking fire conditions and practicing safe burning practices.
