CHECK BEFORE YOU BURN NOTIFICATION PROGRAM
CHECK BEFORE YOU BURN is an educational program from the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District that notifies you when you can use your residential wood burning device. From November 1 through February, the SJVAPCD issues a daily wood-burning status for each county to let you know if you can burn.

CHECK BEFORE YOU BURN reduces wintertime particulate pollution (PM) by restricting the use of wood-burning devices. Residential wood burning is the single largest source of harmful PM during winter and can pump 17 tons of PM into Valley skies daily. PM exacerbates respiratory illness, such as asthma, and causes lung infections and bronchitis.

There are three declaration levels used, No Burning, No Burning Unless Registered and No Restrictions, Burning Discouraged.



The daily wood burning status is issued by county and residents can visit www.ValleyAir.org/CBYB daily to see which of these three possible declarations is in place for their county.

Click HERE to view the Frequently Asked Questions information flyer from the SJVAPCD.

The wood-burning status is also available by calling 1-800 SMOG INFO (766-4463), by subscribing to the daily email at www.valleyair.org/lists/list.htm, or by downloading “Valley Air” at the iPhone App Store.
