2019 Light Up The Corners Glow Run was “the best race and our most successful fundraiser yet,” according to Amy Massey, Race Coordinator.  “This fun, family-friendly event has become a Peachtree Corners tradition shared by more and more every year.”

The annual event in Peachtree Corners has touch lives of so many in the community who need it “most by enabling them to benefit from the life-changing programs and services at the Fowler YMCA.”

In her e-blast to supporters, Massey said, “This event is a team effort in every sense. Many thanks to the more than 150 volunteers who donate their time, talent, and energy so 100% of your entry fees can go directly to the Why It Matters campaign at the Fowler YMCA.”

About the sponsors, she wrote, “This could not be a successful fundraiser without the generous support of our sponsors who help defray our costs through donations of money, food, gift cards, and/or time and resources. If you get a chance, please thank them for caring about – and giving back to – their community.” (Sponsor links below)

Outdoor Burn Ban Ends, But Still Limited in Gwinnett

Published

on

The annual ban on outdoor burning put in place by the Georgia Environmental Protection Division has now ended, but Gwinnett residents must still take precautions and check whether burning is allowed before burning yard debris or hosting bonfires.

The annual summer ban restricts open burning in metro Atlanta and larger counties between May 1 and September 30 to comply with Federal Clean Air Regulations. 

Even though the ban is now lifted, burning may still be restricted on a given day due to weather conditions and in accordance with High Fire Danger Warnings from the National Weather Service or Red Flag Warnings from the Georgia Forestry Commission. Recent drought conditions may also impact when and if outdoor burning is allowed.    

Residents who wish to burn limited amounts of yard debris are allowed to do so between October 1 and April 30, but are required to follow County ordinance restrictions that cover all types of outdoor burning.  Residents should review the outdoor burning ordinance and take required safety precautions before burning to reduce the potential risks of outdoor burning.

The types of fires that are allowed without a permit are:

  • The burning of leaves, limbs, and natural vegetation that may fall on one’s property.
  • Fires for the purpose of keeping warm when the outdoor temperature is 50-degrees or less.
  • Fires for the purpose of cooking food for human consumption.
  • Recreational fires in commercially available chimineas or outdoor fireplaces.

The types of fires that require written permits from Gwinnett County Fire Plan Review are:

  • Land clearing pit fires.
  • Bonfires.

The following general rules govern all outdoor burning:

  • Never leave an outdoor fire unattended.
  • Have a water hose or other means available to control the fire.
  • The Fire Marshal’s Office may temporarily prohibit any and/or all outdoor fires.
  • Burning is not permitted when prevailing winds are predicted to be, or are, in excess of 15 miles per hour, when the National Weather Service issues a Red Flag Warning or a Fire Weather Watch, or during an air pollution episode, such as an air pollution alert, warning or emergency declared by proper authorities. You also must wait at least 24-hours (one-day) following the passage of a cold front before burning.
  • No burning of solid waste or household garbage is allowed. No burning of any materials that emit a heavy dark smoke, such as rubber products, oils, roofing material and petroleum-based products, etc.
  • No burning when smoke presents a health hazard to persons near the fire.
  • No burning within 25-feet of a property line.
  • No burning shall be conducted within 20 feet of flammable or combustible materials (inclusive of homes, outdoor structures and decks) or in close proximity of explosive materials unless otherwise specified by the Fire Marshal’s Office.
  • No outdoor burning of limbs, leaves and yard debris is allowed on Sundays or at night. Any burning limbs, leaves or yard debris must be completely extinguished by nightfall.
  • Compliant bonfires, cooking fires and recreational fires in chimineas and outdoor fireplaces    may be burned at any time provided all other criteria and restrictions are applied.

In addition to the rules listed above, there are certain times during the outdoor burning period that may be designated as a “NO BURN” day due to weather conditions or Red Flag Warnings from the Georgia Forestry Commission. Outdoor burning may also be restricted in certain areas of the county where a medical burn ban area has been established.

Visit www.gwinnettfiremarshal.comfor more information and to see a brochure covering safe burning practices for outdoor and open burning. You can also contact the Gwinnett Fire Community Risk Reduction Division-Fire Marshal’s Office at (678) 518-4980 and select Option 3 for the Burn Information Line, or call the outdoor burn line at (678) 518-4979. Information on outdoor burning is updated daily by 9 a.m. both online and through the outdoor burn line.
