No Statewide Burn Ban in Place

DES MOINES, Iowa -- The Iowa Department of Public Safety (DPS) is assuring Iowans that there is NO statewide burn ban in place in Iowa.

We are currently experiencing technicial difficulties with the automatic notifications system we use to send out burn ban notices and other notifices and we are working to get the issue solved.

In the meantime, please disregard any burn ban notices. However, the notification for Press Releases for all Divisions within DPS is currently working and should not be ignored.
