Southwest Clean Air Agency
Free Electronic Moisture Meter when you take the Burn Dry Seasoned Firewood Pledge:
When you burn unseasoned (green) or even partially seasoned wood in your fireplace or wood stove it can create lots of smoke and cause creosote build-up in your chimney which could lead to a chimney fire.
By taking the Burn Dry Seasoned Firewood Pledge, you commit to the following:
- You pledge to only burn firewood that has been split, stacked and dried for at least 6 months to a moisture content of 20% or less.
- You pledge to join our e-mail list to stay informed about Air Pollution Advisories, Fire Safety Burn Bans and receive e-notifications when a Wood Stove / Fireplace Curtailment (Burn Ban) is in effect.
- You pledge to always check before you burn to see if a Burn Ban is in effect. If a Burn Ban is in effect, you pledge to not burn (unless wood is your only adequate source of heat) until local air quality returns to healthy levels and the ban is lifted.
