Forwarded on behalf of Eastside Fire & Rescue
The communities within Eastside Fire & Rescue (EF&R) are beautiful locations, offering some of the finest living on the west coast. Our neighborhoods cover relatively mountainous terrain, urban in nature, with fences and yards. Many neighborhoods are built in the wooded hills and grasslands that surround our towns. Homes in areas surrounded by vegetation are very popular. These neighborhoods create what we term as the wildland urban interface.
The King County Fire Marshal’s Office is currently tracking fuel loads and drought conditions, as wildfire season approaches. As in the past several summers, it appears conditions are peaking sooner than historical averages. The County wants to get ahead of the situation to reduce the risk of wildfires and associated poor air quality.
Eastside Fire & Rescue (EF&R) begins the annual burning moratorium on June 15. Anyone living within the boundaries of EF&R needs to be aware of these guidelines:
Cooking & Recreational Burning “Permit Required” (No fee permit)
Land Clear Burning
Residential Burning “Permit Required” (No fee permit)
