Smoke Management Plans
Smoke Management Plan (SMP) may be required depending upon the type, size, or location of your burn. SMPs are
always required when a burn has the potential to impact nearby sensitive receptors (homes, schools, businesses, roads, etc.). Depending on your burn, you may be required
to submit a SMP and obtain authorization prior to burning. Any SMP must be submitted
at least thirty (30) days prior to your burn, to allow for review and approval by the District.
The NCUAQMD will soon be requiring use of CARB's Prescribed Fire Information Reporting System (PFIRS)
for prescribed burning.
Presently, you must first submit a copy of your SMP including spreadsheet and maps
(maps should show vicinity of nearest town, etc) to the NCUAQMD for approval. Once your SMP has been approved you may then submit your approved plan into PFIRS.
Smoke Managment Plan Application & Forms
Smoke Management Plans are required under Title 17 of the California Health and Safety Code and are locally
regulated under Regulation II (Rule 206)
of the District's Open Burning rules and regulations.
