Burn Permit Information
Anyone wishing to do agricultural burning such as brush piles and field maintenance must contact the Anderson County Communications Center (ACCC) at 785-448-6823 prior to setting fire. During certain weather conditions a "burn ban" may be in place. ACCC will take down basic information such as what is being burned, where the burning will take place, and contact information for the land owner or person conducting the burn. If burning is allowed, ACCC will issue a "permit" to burn at that location.
If burning takes place during a ban or without a permit, citations will be issued.
Material such as tires, lumber, diesel fuel SHALL NOT be burned. Kansas Department of Health and Environment will be notified if this occurs.
