News Release
Lincoln County Fire Defense Board Begins Debris Burn Bans - 06/18/24

This message is being sent on behalf of the Lincoln County Fire Defense Board

Fire Agencies to begin Debris Burn Bans


The Lincoln County Fire Defense Board and the Oregon Department of Forestry have made the
decision to establish a consistent start and end date for the annual Debris Burn Ban in Lincoln
County. Taking into consideration the increasingly dry fuel models year after year, Debris Burn
Ban will begin annually, June 15th, 2024, and end October 15th, 2024. Individual fire districts
may choose to adjust the burn ban dates based on current weather conditions. The Fire Defense
Board has carefully selected these dates to provide a consistent schedule for the annual burn ban,
to allow the citizens to better plan for yard debris burning.
