Fire Hazards Prompt Suspension of All City of Alturas Burn Permits

The Alturas Fire Department will be SUSPENDING all burning and burn permits starting on June 27th, 2024 in response to dry conditions and fire hazards. Alturas Fire Department personnel will continue to monitor weather conditions in the coming months, but we do not expect to lift the suspension until significant rainfall or snowfall in our area.

Suspended burning DOES NOT include using barbecues, smokers, hibachis and other outdoor cooking and warming units.

The Alturas Fire Department would like to also remind everyone in our community to keep each and every property free of weeds, tall grass, rubbish and garbage. Make sure trees and shrubs are trimmed. Clean up wood piles and make sure all waste is disposed of accordingly to prevent fire and life safety hazards. Residents are urged to be mindful of the high fire danger and exercise caution when engaging in activities that could result in an accidental fire, especially on windy days.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns please call the Alturas Fire Department at (530) 233-4500. Burning information will also be posted on our message board attached to the front of the fire barn. If there is any emergency, please dial 9-1-1. “Please do your part to protect our community and be safe this fire season.”
