Mendocino County gets high winds and a lot of rain in the winter, so it's important to be prepared for downed trees, power outages, and washed-out roads. Check out our guide to Emergency Preparedness.

Road Conditions

Note: For Emergency Conditions and Road Closures, check CHP, Sheriff, Mendocino County DOT, and CalTrans Facebook first. Also check The Coast Facebook Page. CalTrans Highway links are most often construction information and not always current with flooding or other short-term obstructions or closures.

Burn Guidelines

Residents wishing to burn MUST verify it is a permissive burn day prior to burning. Call Mendocino County Air Management District, (707) 463-4391 for verification.

—Pile Burning Requirements—

  • Only dry, natural vegetative material such as leaves, pine needles and tree trimmings may be burned.
  • The burning of trash, painted wood or other debris is not allowed.
  • Do NOT burn on windy days.
  • Piles should be no larger than four feet in diameter and in height. You can add to pile as it burns down.
  • Clear a 10 foot diameter down to bare soil around your piles.
  • Have a shovel and a water source nearby.
  • An adult is required to be in attendance of the fire at all times.

Safe residential pile burning of forest residue by landowners is a crucial tool in reducing fire hazards. State, Federal and Local land management and fire agencies will also be utilizing this same window of opportunity to conduct prescribed burns aimed at improving forest health on private and public lands.
