Burn Ban lifted in Montgomery County


February 7th, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Montgomery County Emergency Management Coordinator Brian Hamman says due to the recent precipitation and current snow cover, Montgomery County Fire officials have agreed to lift the Open Burn Ban which was put in place last week. The ban was established due to abnormally dry conditions throughout all of Montgomery County.

As a reminder to all area residents Hamman asks you to call the Montgomery County Communications Center at 712-623-5107 to report any open burns in Montgomery County that are taking place, in order to prevent any unnecessary fire department responses. Hamman says all area fire departments thank you for your consideration of not open burning while the burn ban was in place during the abnormally warm and dry conditions that were present in the previous week.
