If you have any outdoor burning to do, then you need to get busy this week because Georgia’s annual “burn ban” begins this Friday, May 1st.  The annual “burn ban” is an attempt to improve Georgia’s air quality.  The ban will last until September 30th.  If you need to burn outdoor debris then call 1-877-OK2-BURN to obtain a burn permit.  The state forestry department issues burn permits based on weather conditions.
