Who can request a burn ban?
In Clayton County a Fire Chief or Board of Supervisor, speaking on behalf of a majority of the Fire Chiefs in Clayton County, can request the State Fire Marshal issue a burn ban for the County. Burn bans are issued by county but nothing prevents a city or single fire district from issuing a burn ban for their service area. City or district fire bans are not a state issued burn ban, however.
