§ 78-16.1. Burning Bans. The Fire Marshal has the authority to impose a burning ban on any and all
property within the jurisdiction of this chapter in order to protect such property and persons from the
devastating effects of fire during adverse conditions. A burning ban imposed by the Fire Marshal shall be
immediately effective without notice to the public and supersedes any permits that had been issued prior to
the imposition of the burning ban; however, the Fire Marshal shall make reasonable efforts to communicate
the imposition of the burning ban to the citizens and properties affected.
