The South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) has declared a Residential No-Burn Day in your area.

Residents in your area are prohibited from burning wood or manufactured fire logs in indoor and outdoor residential wood burning fireplaces and stoves due to elevated fine particulate levels forecast by the SCAQMD.

When a residential no-burn alert is issued for your area, please refrain from burning wood throughout the entire day.

This program is being implemented under SCAQMD Rule 445, which requires mandatory wood-burning restrictions when PM2.5 particle pollution levels exceed 30 micrograms per cubic meter (90 AQI) in the months of November, December, January and February. This rule only applies to residences in the South Coast Air Basin at elevations below 3000 feet. Exemptions to Rule 445 are provided for homes where wood burning is the sole source of heat or where no natural gas service is available.

For further information on Rule 445 and alternatives to wood burning, please see http://healthyhearths.org

 
SCAQMD’s Check Before You Burn program is in effect from November through the end of February, when particulate levels are highest. Additional information is available at www.AirAlerts.orgFor 24-hour recorded information, call (866) 966-3293. An interactive map is available at www.aqmd.gov/CheckBeforeYouBurnMap.
 
SCAQMD is the air pollution control agency for Orange County and major portions of Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Riverside counties.
