Adair Co. open burn, increased fire risk advisory
By Mike Keltner, Director
Adair Co. Emergency Management
Over the past few days Adair County Judge Executive Gale Cowan, Adair County Emergency Management Director, County District and City Fire Departments have been monitoring the abnormally dry conditions.
At this time we are reluctant to impose a county wide burn ban. Counties to our north (Taylor and Green) are listed as being in moderate drought conditions and Adair County is listed as being abnormally dry. Rain and storms are forecasted to begin Friday, July 1, 2022, and continue until Tuesday July 5, 2022, with a daily chance of 40-60%. If this forecasted moisture develops and fire reports remain low we hope that we can forgo an open burning ban.
This advisory serves as notice of increased fire risk in Adair County and that an increase of drought status, uncontrolled burns or fires may force implementation of a county wide burn ban.
Please use caution if you must burn or use fireworks during this abnormally dry time.
