REGULATIONS FOR BURNING IN PULASKI COUNTY, KENTUCKY

 

Pulaski County has a burn ban that is in effect throughout the dry season. This ban states that no one is allowed to burn within on hundred-fifty feet of a woodland area before 6:00PM. After 6:00PM you may burn anywhere you wish, on your property. This ban is usually put into effect at the start of spring and will last through the end of fall. This is a Federal Law that is enforced by the U.S. Forestry Service. There will be some days during the season that will not allow for burning anytime. This is usually due to wind and the lack of rain. When this occurs, stay tuned to your radio, as it will be announced that there will be no burning allowed in Pulaski County. If you are in doubt, please contact 911, or your local fire department before burning.

Parkers Mill Fire Department requests that anyone burning, notify 911 and let them know that you plan to have a controlled burn on your land. This way, 911 notifies the Chief or Assistant Chief that you will be watching your fire. This lets us make a note of the controlled burns in our district and should something go wrong, we will have knowledge of where it is and what might be happening with your fire.
