Wildfire Potential in the Mat-Su Area is High
Attention residents - the Mat-Su Valley is dry.
Sunny skies, possible wind, and a lack of precipitation in the forecast mean that vegetation is drying out and burnable.
Please use caution with debris burning, campfires, and anything else that start a wildfire.
While Division of Forestry burn permits are not required at this time of year, you must follow safe-burning guidelines.
Refrain from burning if it is windy.
When you do burn, remain on site and have equipment and water on hand.
Remember, you are responsible for fires you start.
