With any burn operation, you are responsible for ensuring your safety and the safety of the property and other people around you. This application is only a tool to inform you about what the conditions should be on the day you may want to burn. You must evaluate the real local conditions at the time you decide to burn.

You are also responsible for ensuring that you meet all of the permitting and licensing required in your area to burn on your property.
