OPEN BURNING PROCEDURES
While there is not a regulation requiring burn permits in Bourbon County, it is prudent that land owners
to take some precautions. We are experiencing a very dry winter and facing several more days with very
little chance of precipitation and conditions will be favorable for wide and quick spreading wild fires.
If a land owner is planning to conduct a Prescribed Burn or burn LARGE trash or debris
piles, please follow these steps:
1. Notify your local Fire Station by calling Fort Scott Dispatch at 620‐223‐1700. Tell them the location and area to be burned. You may also contact your local Fire Chief directly.
2. Notify your neighbors.
3. Plan for the smoke. Know what direction the wind is blowing, and what or who is in that direction.
4. Have enough people to help, each with enough tools, equipment and water to control the fire.
5. Be prepared in the event the fire gets out of control, know who to call. Call 911 or Fort Scott Dispatch at 620‐223‐1700.
IT IS STRONGLY ADVISED TO NOT CONDUCT ANY PRESCRIBED BURNING WITHOUT TAKING THESE NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS.
As a Property Owner, you may be liable for any costs to have a fire department respond, and costs associated with damages to other properties or homes. Please make all efforts to make your Prescribed Burns safe and controlled.
