Burn Bans and Permits PDF Print Email

Most of Johnson County Fire District #1 falls into what the county classifies as an "unincorporated" area. The county requires that burn permits be issued for ANY outside burning in unincorporated areas. The city of Gardner, Edgerton and New Century Air Center are exceptions to this as they are cities and fall under local ordinance.

Burn permits are FREE and only require a phone call to the Fire District to obtain. We only issue permits to areas we provide fire protection too.

Please call on the day you would like to burn, the permits are issued for the same day only and are good from dawn to dusk.

Learn About Smoke Alarms  

Why should I have a working smoke alarm?

A properly installed and maintained smoke alarm is the only thing in your home that can alert you and your family to a fire 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Whether you’re awake or asleep, a working smoke alarm is constantly on alert, scanning the air for fire and smoke.

According to the National Fire Protection Association, almost two-thirds of home fire deaths resulted from fires in properties without working smoke alarms. A working smoke alarm significantly increases your chances of surviving a deadly home fire.
