Statewide Burn Ban
The State of Louisiana is still under a BURN BAN.
Here are a few important things to remember:
The burn ban is NOT due to dry conditions.
The burn ban is to keep smoke out of the air to prevent respiratory issues, from COVID-19 or otherwise, from worsening.
The burn ban is also an attempt to reduce the number of emergency calls for first responders to limit their unnecessary interaction with each other and the public.
The burn ban does NOT allow using a fire pit, barrel or other containment method to burn rubbish for long periods of time.
You ARE ALLOWED to use barbecue grills, fire pits and small campfires for BRIEF RECREATIONAL purposes.
