County Emergency Management issued Voluntary Burn Ban
05/16/2022
The 90-Day Burn Ban that was in place, county-wide, for Jim Wells expired over the weekend. The JWC Office of Emergency Management and JWC Judge Juan Rodriguez, Jr. have replaced it with a Voluntary Burn Ban for the next several days until the Commissioner’s Court reconvenes and votes to reinstate the 90-day Burn Ban order later this week. It will be the recommendation of the JWC OEM, to reinstate the burn ban due to very dry conditions, expanding drought, higher winds and little to no rainfall.

Residents are highly discouraged from any burning. The grounds and fuel (grass) are all severely depleted of moisture and any fire (even a small one) can lead to a large wildfire that may threaten lives and property.

Our firefighters and fire officials have been extraordinarily busy the last several weeks and can use the communities help to mitigate wildfire activity.

Winds will be elevated all this week, which will lead to very dangerous wildfire activity/behavior and active/rapid spreading will occur.  

Don’t risk putting yourself, your family, or your neighbors' lives and property at risk by lighting fires. When the rain returns and the whole county is relieved of drought conditions, we’ll move to have the ban removed.

Until then, be safe and cool!
