CHECK BEFORE YOU BURN
CHECK BEFORE YOU BURN!
During winter, smoke from residential wood burning – whether it’s in a fireplace, wood stove, pellet stove, wood-burning insert or outdoor chimineas and fire pits – puts dangerous emissions into the air.
Each winter, from November 1 through the end of February, the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution District issues a daily residential wood-burning status. This lets you know if you can burn, depending on your county and the device you have in your residence.
You can find the wood-burning status several ways:
• Call 1-800-SMOG INFO (766-4463) • Visit www.valleyair.org/CBYB • Through your local newscast or in your local newspaper. • Through the free smartphone app, search “Valley Air”
It is YOUR responsibility to find out if you can burn on any given day. If you burn when it is prohibited, you will face fines and penalties.
Check Before You Burn applies to any indoor or outdoor device which burns solid fuel, such as wood, wood pellets or manufactured wood logs. This includes open hearth fireplaces, stoves and inserts and pellet stoves.
PRESS RELEASE - SMOKE DETECTORS
On Saturday January 17, 2015 volunteers from the Red Cross and members of the Turlock Fire Department worked in partnership to install 130 smoke detectors, 100 CO monitors, and changed 78 smoke detector batteries in a Turlock neighborhood. This was in addition to 86 smoke detectors that were installed in November in neighborhoods on Turlock’s western side of the city. This partnership is an opportunity to educate our citizens on the importance of properly installed and working detectors. This is an effort to help reduce the risk to our community.
