Kerr County Burn Ban Order No. 40629

Violations

The Kerr County Judge may cite the Texas Disaster Act of 1975 or HB2620 on outdoor burning as a basis for a burn ban in the unincorporated areas of the county. Kerr County specifically cites Local Government Code 352.081 (Regulation of Outdoor Burning) as the basis for its burn ban.

Kerr County commissioners are then individually responsible for determining the status of burning in their respective precincts.

Provisions of Texas Penal Code 28.04 (Reckless Damage or Destruction) allow for a possible fine of up to $10,000 and/or jail confinement for those who commit violations. Air quality regulations from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality specify the statewide rules for outdoor burning.

All of these rules and laws may apply to those burning outdoors in Kerr County Texas.

NOTE: If open-air, open-flame burning is permitted in your precinct, then please notify your nearest volunteer fire department and the Kerr County Sheriff's Office of your intent to burn before lighting your fire. Please burn safely.

Fireworks

***Retail sales of fireworks will be allowed during the July 4th holiday period. Texas law stipulates that period from Saturday, June 24, through midnight on July 1.***

The Kerr County Commissioners' Court is responsible for either allowing or prohibiting the shooting off of fireworks.

Sales of "skyrockets with sticks" or "missiles with fins" may or may not be prohibited by the court in the unincorporated areas of the county, depending upon the holiday and the environmental conditions of the time.

Texas allows for the sales of fireworks during certain periods, such as for the Fourth of July, Cinco de Mayo (for the 46 counties that lie within a 100-mile distance of the US-Mexico border) and December (Christmas and New Year's) holidays. State law allows the use of fireworks unless the county commissioners prohibit them because of existing drought conditions.

Additionally, local commissioners may allow, by specific order, fireworks sales and use around: Texas Independence Day, San Jacinto Day and Memorial Day.

For additional information on fireworks, view Texas Fireworks Law.
