How to Report Spring Burns

Call Dispatch at 672-2413 to report that you'll be burning on your County property.

Spring in Wyoming means controlled burns on county properties to prepare fields for planting or to clean up areas. There is a right way to conduct the burns, as Sheridan Media's Mary Jo Johnson reports.

It happens every year -- you're driving along, and you'll see or smell smoke, you come upon a property where grass or brush is burning, and you may not see anyone around, so you call in to report a fire. The trouble is, usually there's no emergency. Sheridan County Fire Warden Bill Biastoch comments.

Dispatchers have no way of knowing, without being told beforehand, whether a fire is a controlled burn or a true hazardous fire. Bill asks residents who are planning to burn on their property to call dispatchers ahead of time with name, address and phone number. That way, if passersby see a fire and call in, dispatchers will know not to send emergency personnel to the location.

Bill outlines safe methods for conducting a controlled burn.

Bill stresses, also, that for environmental air quality purposes, you can only burn vegetation. You also cannot burn within each municipality in the county, those being Clearmont, Big Horn, Ranchester, Dayton and Sheridan.

The number to call to let Dispatch know you'll be burning on your property is 672-2413. When prompted, dial 1 to put you directly to a dispatcher. And Biastoch adds that you need to call in every day you'll be burning, even if it's a few days in a row.
