prescribed burn-01

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Jonathan Dickinson State Park will conduct a prescribed burn on Thursday and Friday June 28th and 29th, weather permitting.

The prescribed burn will consist of approximately 300 acres of pine flatwoods near the terminus of SE Flora Avenue (Thursday) and 300 acres north and west of the Boy Scout Camp (Friday). Prescribed fires are only conducted when weather parameters are suitable. The final decision to burn is made daily, after reviewing the Predicted Fire Weather forecast for that particular day and after obtaining a burn authorization from the Florida Forest Service.

There is a possibility of smoke conditions within the City limits, depending on weather conditions. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact Fire Marshal David DeRita at (561) 799-4311.
