Although the ban has been lifted, the Fire Department would like to remind everyone of a few things since we have not caught up on the average rainfall for the year to date totals:
Open burning can only be achieved with an authorized burn permit. Burn permits are issued Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Visit townofsunnyvale.org/burning
for additional information or to fill out an application for a burn permit.
No burning should take place when wind speeds are forecasted above 15 mph.
Never leave the burn site unattended.
Burning is solely for the purpose of land-clearing and only trees, brush, and limbs may be burned.
If you do choose to burn, please ensure that the fire is extinguished before sundown.
Burn piles are required to be at least 150 feet from structures and 50 feet from property lines and public roadways.
Always have a water source or form of extinguishment available.
