Forest City Fire Dept.
Due to the extremely dry conditions throughout the county, the Hancock County Fire Chiefs, want to let you know that a Burn Ban which includes all Hancock County Fire Departments will go into effect on September 5, 2023 at 8:00 AM. This burn ban prohibits open burning without written permission from the Fire Chief in the fire district the fire occurs in. The only other exceptions to this burn ban are listed under number 3 below, which requires a cover with openings no greater than one inch square. The Fire Departments remind everyone to be vigilant and suggests that farmers consider having rippers near the fields that they are harvesting this fall, so they are easily accessible if needed. Currently Winnebago County is not in a burn ban. Hancock County's burn ban is applicable by county not fire district. Winnebago County Fire Dept's would like the area residents to be aware that with the current dry conditions we are experiencing to be mindful that fire conditions are favorable for fire spread. If you have to burn, as always report your controlled burn to the sheriffs office before and after said burn. Be advised to stay tuned as a potential burn ban could be implemented.
