Burn Permits 
.................................................................................................................................................................................................
     This months fire safety tip relates to burn permits every spring various fire dept's have A lot of problems people burning with out getting permission from there local fire dept. L.B. 408 81-520.01 1 . There shall be A statewide open burning ban on all bonfires,outdoor rubbish fires for the purpose of clearing land (2) The fire chief of A local fire dept. his or her designee may waive an open ban under subsection (1 )  by issuing an open burning permit thus waive the open burning ban, when conditions are acceptable to the chief or his designee . Any person violating this open burning ban may be cited of A class 4 misdemeanor . Some areas or community can have burn barrels if you in doubt please contact your local fire  dept. this L.B. 408 81-520.01 ia A Nebraska law. If it is windy or very dry do not expect your local fire dept to give you a burn permit . There is A list of items that  you can not burn like tires,of painted lumber or creosote coated lumber just to name A few . A majority  of fire dept's. are all volunteer dept's.  when calls come in people leave there jobs to do there civic duty and when someone just burns without A permit can cause A lot of unnecessary emergency response that can most times be prevented by A call to there local fire dept. What is really bad you can be responding to A call one end of your dist. on burning without permits when A very real emergency happens at the other end. Take Valentine Fire for example it may take just about an hour to respond to A call 30 - 45 miles away . Well that is all for this month please have A fire free spring.
