To assist in the management of manpower, equipment and other resources, for large project burns, a person may wish to use the following established procedure:
To receive a permissive-burn or no-burn notice for range improvement, forest management or wildlands vegetation management burning, a permittee must submit a request for notice to the ARB at least seven days before the date of the burn. Such notice will be issued up to 48 hours before the scheduled commencement of the burn project; however, the ARB may cancel permissive-burn notices that have been issued more than 24 hours before project commencement, if such cancellation is necessary to maintain suitable air quality.
