Tennessee burn permits
It is Fall and The Tennessee Department of Agriculture Division of Forestry is observing National Fire Prevention Week by reminding citizens to follow simple safety practices to prevent wildfires. The official start of wildfire season in Tennessee is Oct. 15. "We expect favorable conditions for safe debris burning over the next couple of months," State Forester David Arnold said Monday. "However, we shouldn't let our guard down. We encourage Tennesseans to remain vigilant and practice safe debris burning to prevent wildfires." Obtaining a burn permit is free, fast, and simple. If you are burning a leaf or brush pile that is smaller than 8 feet by 8 feet in size, an online system provides a quick and efficient way to apply. For a larger burn, call your local Division of Forestry burn permit phone number Mon. through Fri., 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. The online system and burn permit phone numbers can be found at www.BurnSafeTN.org. The burn permit system is important because a permit will only be issued when conditions are conducive to safe burning, and will not be issued if the environment is too dry or too windy.
