*Gathering around a campfire makes for lifelong memories, but backyard fires can have a serious impact on air quality. We take every measure to minimize health and environmental impacts by burning a safe distance from homes and playgrounds, and by following Allegheny County Health Department standards and EPA recommendations for responsible fires. You can do your part by rethinking your backyard burn in favor of joining your neighbors to walk, bike, bus or carpool to our community campfire.
