Winter Spare the Air

Every year between November 1 and February 28, burning wood, fire logs, pellets, or any other solid fuels in your fireplace, woodstove, or other wood-burning device is illegal if a Winter Spare the Air Alert has been issued. On high pollution days, when particulate matter levels are anticipated to be unhealthy, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District will issue a Winter Spare the Air Alert which prohibits burning throughout the Bay Area. Residents can sign up to receive automatic phone alerts by calling 1-800-430-1515. To check the Winter Spare the Air Alert status or to report wood smoke concerns, residents should call 1-877-4NO-BURN (1-877-466-2876). More information can be found at
