Declaration of Local Emergency

November 16, 2023

Pulaski County officials are asking residents to refrain from any outdoor burning. Due to higher than normal temperatures accompanied by dry and breezy conditions, the likelihood of uncontrollable fire spread in our area is incredibly high. Outdoor burning at any time of the day could quickly become an out of control wildfire.

In accordance with state outdoor fire laws, any person participating in an open burn that results in a forest fire will be guilty of a Class 3 misdemeanor and will be financially responsible for all costs associated with suppressing the fire.
