Open Burning Ends November 30 in Gallatin County

Bozeman, MT – The last day for opening burning in 2019 is November 30th in Gallatin County.  Open Burning is permitted from March 1 to November 30th each year in Montana with a valid burn permit.  Individuals in Gallatin County with a valid burn permit are reminded to finish their fall burning in the next two weeks.

After December 1st, only individuals conducting burning under special authorizations separate from Burn Permits (such as Hazard Reduction Agreements, land management agencies, etc…) in coordination with Montana Department of Environmental Quality are able to conduct burning.  This annual closure for Open Burning is in place to avoid affecting air quality with our frequent stagnant air in the winter season.

Make “Safe Thinking” Your Holiday Motto

Release:  190628-01
Contact:  Patrick Lonergan, (406) 548-0111

Make “Safe Thinking” Your Holiday Motto

Bozeman, MT – As we approach the Fourth of July Emergency Management encourages everyone to make “Safe Thinking” your motto as you are out celebrating.  Around the 4th of July holiday many people spend time with family and friends celebrating during our nice weather, but unfortunately the difference between a good time and an accident is a very fine line.  Emergency Management asks our community to think about the following thoughts while celebrating:

  • The grass is green, but vegetation and homes can still catch fire.  Think proactively about where you are setting fireworks off and where they will end up after being lit.
  • Fireworks are fun, but treat them with extreme respect.  Their behavior can be hard to predict and they frequently fail.  It is really easy to be harmed by fireworks as they burn extremely hot and will immediately burn skin.  Watch your kids closely.
  • Now is a great time to enjoy bon fires.  Ensure you safely construct your fire to keep it from accidentally spreading.  Keep a safe distance from the fire, every year people are injured from falling into recreational fires.
  • Don’t forget about your pet’s safety.  Keep them in a safe environment and ensure they have ID tags in case they get lost.
