Open Burn Status
Open burning is restricted in San Mateo County. Read on to learn more.
The widgets to the left help determine, at a glance, if burning with a permit is allowed. At a minimum
You must have a burn permit
There must be no Spare The Air alert
The Coast Section status for today must say "Burn" (not "No Burn"). You may call (800) 792-0787 for a voice recording of the current burn status.
If you do not have a permit, or you are not familiar with the process, do not proceed with open burning.
