 BURN BAN BEGINS MAY 1 –  Our annual burn ban imposed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on the metropolitan-Atlanta area counties begins May 1 and lasts until October 1.  “Burn ban” means no outdoor burning of any sort can be done in order to control emissions into the atmosphere during the hotter, more critical time of year.  Chattahoochee Hills Fire Rescue Department must enforce this ban since it is federally mandated.  Thank you for your support.
