Burn advisory lifted for Adams County
9 months, 1 week ago
This past weekend's rainfall helped drought conditions a bit
The Adams County Emergency Management Agency has lifted the burn advisory for all areas of Adams County that was issued on June 28th. While the continued drought persists, current surface moisture does not present conditions for rapid acceleration of fires. This comes after 2" – 4" of rain fell across the county, calm winds, and increased humidity. Although conditions now are more acceptable to burning, precautions should still be taken.
• Make sure to have a water source nearby to extinguish the fire should it become out of control
• Do not leave a fire unattended
• Ring any fires with something to contain it
• If you have a fire and it starts to become out of control call 9-1-1 early
The Adams County Emergency Management Agency will continue to monitor drought conditions and situations may change throughout late summer and fall.
