Recent rains have helped lower the drought conditions, allowing Pasco County to lift the Emergency Burn Ban for all areas of the county today, Thursday, June 27, 2024 – effective immediately.

While drought conditions improve, it’s important to remember the county is still drier than normal.  Pasco County Fire Rescue urges everyone to prioritize safety while burning outdoors.  Proper measures and precautions should be taken to protect people from fire danger.

Everyone living in unincorporated areas of Pasco County may resume outdoor burning, including:

  • Open burning
  • Campfires/bonfires
  • Burning yard waste

Anyone planning to conduct an open burn should comply with all Florida Forest Service permitting requirements.
